Much like the Blue Cornflower, the Polka Dot Cornflower is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Also known as the Polka Dot Bachelor's Button, this annual comes in a mix of pink, blue, purple, white and red flowers. It reaches up to 24" tall and makes a great addition to any flower bed. This flower is an heirloom variety.

Folks near foothills should exercise caution as bachelor's buttons can naturalize and compete with natives in some areas. Great in meadow gardens and as a middle-of-the-border plant.

Seeds grown by Thompson Creek Farm in Newman Lake, Washington.

50 seeds.

Directions: Direct seed in Spring after last frost. They do not transplant well due to their long tap root. Prefers full or part sun in well drained soil.
