The leaves of the Centaurea cyanus plant are narrow, elongated, pointed and slightly hairy and grow without petioles. The lower leaves of this plant are slightly longer and wider.

At the end of each flowering stem, grows a drop-shaped, small, green bulge. Each bulge consists of a many triangular-shaped and relatively elongated leaflets that are densely placed next to each other. On the side of each leaf there are several very small blades.
