Centaurea cyanus   Cornflower C D N

Centaurea cyanus whole Centaurea cyanus close

Once a common sight in corn fields, this native plant far less common and usually see as an occasional birdseed alien.

However this is the genuine article: a field of barley with cornflowers dotted all over it. It has been known at this site for years and in the distance you can see a high density of blue flowering plants (which I couldn't get near without treading all over the crop).

Good old Scotland!
