Feathery button-size blooms of true blues, whites, and pinks.

JFK wore this flower at his wedding as a tribute to his father. When he did so, he stepped into dialogue with centuries of symbolic meaning given to this bloom. It was once worn by bachelors to test if their courting was successful (if the bloom withered quickly the young couple’s love was not to last, so they said). But it has also been the symbol of various, mostly progressive, political movements. In our minds, these flowers are as masculine an accessory as a tie, a briefcase, or a derby hat.

Also known as Cornflower, the Bachelor Button can reach heights of 3 feet and is a great cutting flower
