Soil: well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average
Flowering period: June to August
Hardiness: fully hardy
Piercing, bright blue flowers with ruffled petals and violet-blue centres apear from early to late summer among lance-shaped, mid-green leaves. Once a common sight in cornfields, this lovely annual is perfect for naturalising in a sunny wildflower meadow and is a magnet for butterflies and bees. Profits from these seeds are used to protect existing wildflower areas and develop potential new sites. Garden care: Wild flowers prefer poor soils, so do not apply fertiliser.  Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. In autumn, cut the faded flowerheads down to the ground and compost the dead stems.
