Centaurea 'Black Ball' (Cornflower) Seeds


This showy annual is grown for its almost black flowers. The deep purple-black ruffled flowers take on an almost papery appearance, and are produced on long, semi-leafless stems. This makes an excellent cut flower, and also draws wildlife to the garden by being a strong pollinator attractant.
