Origin / Cultivation

An annual plant originating in the Near East, Cornflower then spread throughout Europe and North America. It is a plant that spontaneously grows in fields and on fallow land. It is mostly known for its lovely characteristic blue flowers which have been used in phytotherapy since the 12th century for their beneficial properties for the eyelids and eyes, earning them the nickname of "glasses-breaker" in French.
