Cornflower is a member of the daisy family noted for its vibrant azure blue flowers and is native to Europe, but is now naturalized in other parts of the world, including North America and Australia. Its name is derived from naturally growing near field crops, mainly corn. Today, cornflower petals are added to tisane, potpourri, baked goods, soups, salads, and custards or are frozen, in decorative ice cubes for iced beverages.
