This long blooming North American native aster relative was selected by a gardener named Peachie Saxton, not because it has peachy coloring. 3″ lavender blue cornflowers begin to bloom in June and carry on through July at least, and longer if kept deadheaded. Plants grow to 18″ tall and wide, and are visited regularly by bees and butterflies. Plants like an average to moist soil in summer, but dislike winter wetness.
