Corncockle is a small genus with only 2 species: the larger Agrosthemma githago from Asia Minor and the smaller Agrostemma gracile from Farsala in central Greece. Both species are fast growing annuals to biannuals with linear leaves on tall upright stems crowned by several showy pink flower cups from early to mid summer. Easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in full sun.
Sow seeds flat directly to the ground in any rich, well drained soil in spring. Plants greatly dislike to be transplanted, thus leave undisturbed. Will readily selfsow under appropiate conditions. In a mild winter seedlings will survive outside if they are not burnt by strong freezings. Alternatively collect some seeds in summer to be sowed in following spring.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7/8.
