Scabiosa atropurpurea
‘Scarlet’

Scabiosa atropurpurea ‘Scarlet’ Scabiosa atropurpurea ‘Scarlet’

The nectar from the cherry red blooms of this prolific ‘pincushion’ must be sweet, for it’s one of your best bets for enticing butterflies & bees to the garden. Dozens of spherical, 2,” deep scarlet bloom clusters with contrasting white “pins” sit atop long-branching stems Spring thru Fall – perfect for cutting (lasting up to 2 weeks in a vase.) Cool as a dried flower, too! EASY & fast, just cut it back to 6” whenever it needs refreshing.  Self-sows. To 2'-3’ tall & 1’ wide.
