Just when we're on the cusp of spring and summer in the Pacific NW, visitors to the nursery will often say, "I saw this really cool purple/blue/white spidery looking flower in a neighbor's flower bed, and I want one!" Chances are, it's a perennial cornflower or Bachelor's Button, and yes, they come in all three colors.
