Cornflower (Bachelor’s Button) (Flowerhead)

Photo of a cornflower, closeup of a flowerhead.

A member of the thistle tribe of composites, cornflower lacks true ray florets; instead, the outer florets of each head have enlarged, flaring corolla tubes that at a glance look something like the strap-shaped extensions of true ray florets.
