Bachelor's buttons are also known as cornflower. These delightful, summer-blooming flowers are not only a treat for pollinators, they are edible and make excellent cut flowers, while also being deer resistant, and drought tolerant. Blooms 6 to 8 weeks after sowing. The term "bachelor's button" refers to the old-fashioned practice of bachelors placing the cut flower in the buttonhole when they went courting. If the flower died quickly, it symbolized that their love was not returned.
