Cornflowers (5 photos)

Cornflowers (Centaurea cyanus) are the prettiest heralds of summer – their intensely blue colored ray florets reflect a lot of ultraviolet light and are easily notable and highly attractive in fields of young grains like wheat, barley, rye or oat. Each cornflower is a bouquet! They have a ring of ray florets surrounding a central cluster of disc florets.
