A Forest Garden - Record of Progress

The Inspiring CornFlowers of Spring

From creamy Blue to Purple, and back again. One of Spring’s most delightful plants - Centaurea cyanus (AKA Cornflower), is a prolific self seeder and inspiring sight in the garden.  Able to tolerate the often brutal Summer conditions of Melbourne, drought tolerant, low on soil resources, and a lovely tough mulch for the Winter.

Broadcast a handful of seed with fellow annuals and meadow grasses, and you will be repaid year on year in visual delights.

And while you are waiting it out in the Northern Hemisphere – here are those flowers in the meantime.
