Petite Corncockle (annual, overwinter) Corncockle

One could call this the little sister of our native corncockle. The graceful dark-pink petals are adorned with a finely dotted star. Once the eye catches a glimpse, it is hard to look away. Height reaches up to 100 cm. The flowering period is from June to August.

Sow by broadcasting seeds in autumn or March–April right into the field. Corncockles thrive in any open garden soil in a sunny location. Grows well with neighbouring plants of bellflower and poppy.

Kornrade/corncockle (annual overwinter) / Corn champion Corncockle

This native herb grows amidst grain fields, but has largely disappeared due to herbicide use. This is unfortunate since the beautiful purple flowers add that special something in aestetics to the farm field. Height reaches 30–100 cm with a flowering time of June to July. Seeds are toxic in large quantities.
