Cornflower

Cornflower (Centaurea sp., possibly Centaurea cyanus) was spotted during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

The flowers were growing in a field along an electric power line easement on one of the park boundaries.

Sincere thanks to members of the Capital Naturalist Facebook group for help in identifying the flowering plant.
