Cornflowers have blue outer petals with purple inner florets which appear reddish. Although this type of wildflower was most commonly found on farmlands, their numbers have declined significantly.

Purple Oraches are an edible kind of perennial. Oraches showcase reddish and purple foliage with the same shade flower spikes that make a beautiful contrast when clumped in neighboring flowers. Corn Chamomiles are white daisy-like flowers with disc florets in yellow shades. Chamomiles are commonly naturalized in wildflower meadows and often mixed with other wildflowers such as corn marigolds, corn cockle, and cornflowers. Corn Cockles are large, flowery, five-petaled flowers that are typically magenta colored and most often found in the farming field. Although corn cockles were once a common wildflower, intensive agriculture has caused them to become scarce. Cornflowers, Purple Oraches, Corn Chamomiles, and Corn Cockles prefer partial to full sun exposure while preferring to be placed within moist to well-drained soil.
