Corncockle with its straight stems and purplish pink flowers used to be a common sight in the wheat fields and along the roadsides. It must have been an idyllic, heartwarming sight to see. This is a happy easy to grow cut flower and a new favourite of ours. If you keep cutting the flowers, it will keep producing more. Grow it once and you'll be hooked!
