Grow a colorful mixture of Cornflowers, with the Polka Dot Mixture, from freshly harvested Centaurea cyanus flower seeds. Polka Dot Mixture consists of 5 various colored Cornflowers, from red, pink, white, blue and purple. Each flower head is roughly 1 to 1.25 inches in diameter, displaying tooth shaped florets. The blooms are known to attract native honeybees, bumblebees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other beneficial insects to the garden as well.

Categorized as an annual flowering plant, Polka Dot Mixture will grow quickly, bloom profusely through the summer months and later die with the first killing frost. The seeds of these beautiful flowers can be collected at the end of the season, when the flower heads have dried out. Resow the following season, or allow seeds to drop to the bare ground beneath for fresh, new growth the following year.

Sowing The Seed

Cornflowers are best established directly outdoors, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Begin by clearing your sowing area of all unwanted plant life and weeds. Turn the dirt, or replace it with a fresh sowing medium. Scatter the seeds to the bare ground, spacing them out accordingly. Cover thinly, with 1/16" of topsoil so that direct sunlight can reach the seeds.

Growing Conditions

Cornflowers thrive in warm locations of roughly 65F to 70F or more. They require an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day, and are adaptable to almost any soil condition. You must make sure that your sowing area is however, well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water the seeds daily until germination has occurred. Once established, Cornflower can be quite drought tolerant.

Germination & Growth

Cornflower seeds are known to germinate in as little as 14 to 21 days after sowing. This Polka Dot Mixture will grow to a mature height of roughly 16 to 24 inches tall, producing lovely, tooth shaped florets in shades of pink, red, purple, white and  blue. Each flower can be spaced about 6 to 12 inches apart from one another. Cornflower is known to attract native honeybees, bumblebees, hummingbirds & butterflies as well.
