Sweet Scabious (Scabiosa Atropurpurea Tall Double mixed) 50 seeds (#1990)

Easy, 'pincushion' flowers attract butterflies and bees
Brightly coloured pincushion heads above crisp green foliage. A real magnet to butterflies and bees, great in 'cottage garden' borders or as a lasting cut flower.
This popular annual gets its common name of from its long, gray stamens that protrude like "pins" from the dense "cushion" of the flower.
A short-lived perennial but I always treat it as an annual, sowing new seed every year - is the most miraculous performer in any garden.
This charming and easy perennial grows best in full sun and fertile well-drained acid to alkaline soil. Deadhead regularly to encourage continued bloom and to prevent self-sowing.
A splendid companion for summer-blooming campanulas, veronicas, foxgloves, and verbascums, it is a natural for perennial borders and cottage gardens.
The blooms are perfect for cutting.
