Description: Cornflower petals come from an annual plant native to Europe which grows to a height of 40-90cm. The leaves are alternate, linear-lanceolate in shape with thinly toothed entire margins, 1-4cm in length and greyish-green to lime green in colour. The solitary flowers are 2.5-3.5cm in diameter with a central disc surrounded by ray-florets which are deep blue to violet blue in colour.


Cornflowers petals can be added to pot pourri to add a bright splash of bright colour and to decorative papers, to pressed flower decorations and to decorate soaps and cosmetics; a decoction of the flowers can be added to lotions and creams for the skin where anti-inflammatory properties are required. Add to shampoos and hair rinses, decoctions of the petals can be used to soothe the eyes.
