    Scabiosa are a true delight in the garden - easy to grow, prolific bloomers and long strong stems. Beautiful at every stage - From bud to full flower to seed pods. The bees and butterflies love them and even my twins love to pick them. I mean seriously, who doesnt love them? Scabiosa are an absolute firm favourite that I grow year after year in my garden.


    This is a perennial scabiosa - even better! Although the perennial type a just a little bit less generous with their blooms compared to annual scabiosa.

  • Notes from the garden



    Perennial Scabiosa can be a little slower to germinate, taking upto 40 days, and can be very erratic, often requiring a period of cold stratification. 


    Scabiosa can get a little top heavy, so some staking or netting required.


    Seed pods geat for drying.


    Much loved by the bees.
