Agrostemma Githago White

Agrostemma (Agrostemma Githago Bianca White) - Start the flower seeds directly outside and add a charming Agrostemma to the flower garden! These medium to tall flowering annuals have long, softly hairy leaves and large 1 1/2 inch white flowers. The flowers form singly on a long stem and sway in the slightest breeze. The flowers are followed by a straw colored flask-like seed head containing large, black, rough textured seed.

Agrostemma Githago, often referred to as Corncockle, can be established easily from flower seed, and is known to be a liberal self-sower. Agrostemma seeds will grow in most soils but does particularly well on free-draining, sandy loam. It can be considered a weed in crops.
