Cornflower Black Ball blooms all summer and into autumn providing a unique and exotic colour to the garden and attracting butterflies along with other pollinators.
These look amazing with peach coloured Calendulas and Nasturtiums in a vase and make a great cut flower and of course being an annual, the more you cut them, the more they flower.
