Cornflower
Cornflower

In medieval lore, it was believed that a girl who placed a cornflower beneath her skirt could have any bachelor she desired -- which is perhaps how the flower acquired its other name, bachelor's button. An inexpensive choice appropriate for a casual wedding, the cornflower comes in white, pink, dark magenta, and, most commonly, blue, with feathery blue-gray foliage. Its button head and colorful legend make it a charming boutonniere flower for groomsmen.
