Plant Details

A small, compact cornflower with rich purple-black spidery flowers. 

Loved by bees and butterflies. Makes a very good cut flower.

Height and Spread: 20cm x 45cm

Common name(s): Perennial cornflower, Mountain cornflower


All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
