Centaurea cyanus

Cornflower - White Ball

Centaurea cyanus

A beautiful cornflower variety with completely white, dense and double flowers and a low and compact growth habit. Perfect for edging, planters and pots. The variety looks incredibly beautiful in bouquets both freshly picked and as dried flowers.

The flowers of this variety are also edible and magical to use as a garnish on cakes or pastries. A tip from us at Florea is to garnish a delicious raspberry panna cotta with White Ball’s lovely flowers for an extra summery feeling. It’s also possible to make juice and tea from the variety, making it not only beautiful but also very useful.

It is highly appreciated by our pollinators and a perfect attractant for kitchen gardens and cultivation.
