Cornflower seeds can be started directly outdoors, and commonly called Bachelor's Button, this dwarf variety features a compact growth habit and fully double, bright white flowers. The bees and butterflies, like to visit a blooming Cornflower.
Moluccella laevis (Bells of Ireland) has tall spikes of fresh apple-green bells arranged all the way up the stem. An outstanding foliage plant – one of my favourite plants for summer and autumn arranging. (so far, growing easily from seed this summer)
