Brilliant Blue Flowers
Brilliant blue flowers on 16-30” stems, making great cut flowers. Now common in North American gardens, Bachelor’s Buttons hail from the UK where they were considered weeds in grain (i.e. corn) fields. They are now threatened due to extensive use of herbicides in agriculture. Folklore tells us the name “bachelor’s buttons” comes from young men pinning them on their jackets as a symbol of their love. If the flowers faded too quickly it was a sign that their love was not returned.
