They make ideal plants for growing in simulated wild gardens. A good plant for bees, butterflies and moths.
The petals of cornflowers are the part used in herbal folklore. Cornflowers are considered to have tonic, stimulant properties. An infusion of the flower petals was used as an eyewash and as an astringent mouthwash.
Succeeds in ordinary garden soil.
