Corn Cockle (Agrostemma githago)

A beautiful summer-flowering annual, corn cockle bears large, five-petaled, magenta-colored flowers and is often associated with farming fields. Once a common wildflower, it is scarcer now due to the practices of intensive agriculture. This fully hardy plant prefers full to partial sun and well-drained to moist soil. H: 28 inches; S: 16 inches
