@gjones thanks Katy 😀 they don’t look as soft and fluffy as they are. Can’t help but squish them when I walk past 😂

Did you grow them from seed? I like them! Perhaps I should try them with the wildflower cornflowers 💙💜

@ublaszko I did and they seem much stronger than the normal cornflowers. They’d make a nice combination with them and might help with keeping them upright too 😂

I just like the flower shape and the colours but yeah, would help to keep my floppy cornflowers upright 😅 (There's a joke there somewhere 😁😁). I'm off to bed now because Pudgy doesn't like the light from the screen 😅😅😅

Lovely - These remind me of Amberboa moschata, which I think used to be called Centaurea

@richard.spicer.7906 aaaah! You’re a legend Rich! 🙏🏻 last summer I grew ‘Sweet Sultan’ from seed and added it on here. Went to add a other photo later in the season and it had been renamed to cornflower. Just checked ‘Amberboa Moschata’ online and that’s the proper name for ‘Sweet Sultan’ 😁 thank you for inadvertently helping with that 😛

@richard.spicer.7906 these are a Thompson & Morgan seed mix just called ‘Cornflower Mixed’ 😂 helpful of them 🤣 but they’re lovely little flowers, like a tiny soft thistle

@gjones aren’t they 😛 nice change from the traditional cornflower

My pleasure! Sounds like someone in the admin team thought they were still Centaurea and merged your new record 🤔 - create it again (just do the name if you like if you don’t know the rest of the details) and I’ll make sure the rest gets completed and kept at Amberboa / Sweet Sultan. I help out on the encyclopaedia now 👍🏼
