Bachelor’s Button – Cornflower

Share This Page

Bachelors ButtonBachelor’s button (or blue cornflower) is a lovely annual flower which makes a tea that helps digestion.  It is also a diuretic and is considered a tonic herb because of these properties.  The tea is also used as an eye wash or eye drops.  It is an easily grown annual and will reseed itself if using heirloom seed.  Also, it comes in other shades such as pink and white.  But the blue cornflower has always been my favorite because of its bright, almost fluorescent shade of blue.
