Bachelor’s Button Flower

Beautiful Violet Bachelor’s Button Flower


Bachelor’s-button is a plant with small flowers shaped like buttons. Usually the flowers are blue, but some varieties have pink, purple, or white blossoms. The flowers measure 1 to 1 ± inches (2.4 to 3.7 centimeters) across. Bachelor’s-buttons are annual plants—that is, they live for only one year. The plant, which blooms from June to September, grows up to 2 feet (60 centimeters) tall and has long, narrow leaves. White, cottony hairs cover the leaves and young stems. Bachelor’s-buttons are also called cornflowers or bluebottles.
