Grow a patriotic flower patch to celebrate various patriotic holidays or to honor veterans or loved ones in the military.
These annual Cornflowers look beautiful in any flower border, particularly when planted in drifts, and provide a rich source of nectar for bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. Cornflowers are easy to grow and provide flowers throughout summer, giving vibrant color in the garden, as cut flowers, and on the plate! The petals have a mild clove-like flavor and are great for making natural food coloring for icing cakes, for floral teas, fancy ice cubes, decorating cheeses, cakes and rice dishes. An easy to grow and popular edible flower. Fantastic gift for friends of the military.
