    Product Details

    A gorgeous and elegant variety of corncockle with large white flowers on long, straight stems. 

    Once a common sight in the cornfields now corncockles are more often seen grown in a beautiful, cottage garden border.

    Good for a cut flower garden as they have a long vase life. They look amazing tumbled into a vase with other informal flowers or equally as enchanting if displayed on their own.

    Easy to grow either started undercover or sowed directly into the soil.

    Deadhead the flowers regularly to encourage more flowers.

    Self seeds freely.

    Plant Care Tips

    Can grow to about 1m and will benefit from growing through the netting for support
    Likes full sun
    Germination approx 14 days
