Centaurea cyanus-Bachelor's Buttons, Cornflower. These multipurpose flowers can be eaten, dried, or used as fresh cut flowers. Their seeds are often found in wildflower mixes and they can sometimes become a weed from self-sowing. Some references say they don't do well in clay soils and that may be why they declined by the end of the summer in Fargo.
