Scabiosa

Tall Double Flowered Mix Scabiosa

(Scabiosa atropurpurea) Annual. Also known as Sweet Scabious or Pin-cushion Flower. Free-flowering annual with large, intricate flowers on long branching stems to 30 inches. Sweetly fragrant blooms appear about midsummer, continuing until frost. Butterflies love the flowers at least as much as you will! Colors range from pure white through carnation pink, rose to a very rich maroon. Makes a superb cut flower. Liberty Hyde Bailey in 1917 wrote in The Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture that Sweet Scabious “..are among the most popular of flower-garden annuals,” and they should be much more widely grown today
