Centaurea cyanus is an easy to grow annual, also known by its common name of cornflower.  Centaurea cyanus is best sown directly in the soil, where it is to flower.  I love growing Centaurea cyanus!  If you want to grow Centaurea cyanus, sow seeds from March until the end of May or from August to September.

Centaurea cyanus flowers from June until September.  Ensure you pick the flowers regularly to prevent the plant from producing seeds, and to prolong and maximise the flowering period.
