This American relative of bachelorís button or cornflower grows wild in the south-central region of the United States as well as in Mexico. Its common name is derived from the basket-like base of each blossom that holds the delicate petals. The genus name Centaurea comes from Greek mythology, as according to legend, one of the centaurs used this flower for healing purposes after battle.
