          I used these plants to control erosion at the back of my property and at the same time to add color and attract polinators.

          Good experience with these folks.

              These are always the first among my wildflowers to bloom. They definitely look better when planted in mass as the dainty flowers can get overlooked if there are other plants growing too close. I did have these planted with Rocket larkspur behind them this year and the colors complimented each other nicely. They are low maintenance and reseed, though I wish I had bought more seed this year, because they didn't come back as thick.

                Comments about American Meadows Cornflower or Bachelor Button Seeds, Multicolored - 1/4 LB:

                Wow. These flowers come up early in the season and just keep on going and going all summer long. Beautiful colors. Reseeds readily though, so if you don't have a large area you may very well be "fighting" with seedlings. Fortunately, I have the room and I just love the fact that these flowers are spreading throughout my property.

                    I used it in a meadow it came up and flower then died back and rebloom in the fall. This spring it has came back just as strong as last year.
