Today’s Kona cotton color of the day is Cornflower.

According to Wikipedia, Centaurea cyanus is commonly known as Cornflower or Bachelor’s Button. It is an annual flowering plant and in the past, it often grew as a weed in cornfields. The seeds thrive in the same conditions as corn; open, sunny fields with moderately dry soil, but due to the overuse of herbicides in corn fields the Cornflowers no longer reseed themselves naturally. Cornflowers are often used as a boutonniere in weddings and come in a wide range of colors, including white, pink, red-purple, deep burgundy, and crisp blue which is the only true natural color.
