Cornflower

Centaura cyanus was a common weed of corn fields. The intense blue petals retain their color well, making them ideal for pot-pourri and as an early blue dye for linen. If the "Bachelor's button" in young men's coats faded, they were unlucky in love!

They are a magnificent contrast to calendula on our cheese, and gorgeous in spring bouquets.

Cornflowers may be used in shampoo, and to salve tired eyes, but apparently work best on blue eyes!
