Cornflower Black Ball

Item Number: 57905
  • Description
  • Cornflower is one of the easiest flowers to grow and the masses of colourful flower heads will be stunning. Known as Bachelor's Buttons, they were traditionally worn by horse riders in the show ring.

    Black Ball, as the name would very much suggest, is a dark mauve double flower growing to about 90cm in height. This variety makes for an ideal choice for a cut flower or it is just as beautiful when grown in the border.
