Scabiosa atropurpurea
'Florist's Blue'

Scabiosa atropurpurea Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Florist's Blue'

Create a big displayof these wonderful, rich lavender blooms. All you need is one plant to get at least a hundred of these sweetly scented, 2,” spherical “pincushions.” Not the commonly seen smaller, flatter flowered species, this ‘Sunburst’ strain was selected for its large, dense blooms. Long and sturdy branching stems make it the perfect cut flower machine lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase!  The more you cut, the longer it blooms. Or cut back to 6” for a second performance. Rich soil a must! 30”-36” tall.  Reseeds! Great habitat plant. Self sows!
