Default Should it not be Blue? - Question answered.

Further to a discussion with Scoundrel on whether soil PH alters colours of flowers (and in some it most certainly does) - in the case of my cornflowers recently planted, variations of colours in the same garden box are appearing.
So I am thinking that these cornflowers are Hybrids due to colour breeding.
There is also the pink in the original post and I think a white - which I still hope may appear.

The Dark Blue Cornflower which we think of as "Cornflower Blue".



A light Mauve.



Dark Purple.

Regardless of the colour genetics, these are very nice images. The first is my favourite.

That "cornflower blue" is hard to beat as a blue colour isn't it?
