Description

"Blue Boy" Cornflower is a stunning representation of Centaurea cyanus, producing vibrant blue blooms that can easily become the centrepiece of any garden. These flowers, showcasing an arresting hue, typically appear during Djeran to Makuru (Autumn to Winter) and create an enchanting visual when mass-planted. Suitable for cut flower arrangements, they add a touch of wilderness and charm to any vase.

Optimal growth for the "Blue Boy" Cornflower is in the ground, but it also flourishes in pots. For those with sandy soils, enhancing with a quality soil conditioner is recommended to provide the plant with a nutrient-rich foundation. Place it in a position of full sun, ensuring regular watering but allowing the soil to slightly dry out between watering sessions. An all-purpose fertiliser applied in Bunuru (late summer) will bolster its growth. No specific pruning is required; however, deadheading spent blooms can encourage further flowering.
