Scabious Border Mix (Scabiosa Caucasica) 25 seeds (#1371)

Dubbed "pincushion flower" for its flat frilly lilac-blue flowerheads that bristle with protruding stamens, this hardy perennial from the Caucasus sends up wiry knee-high flower stalks from clumps of gray oval basal leaves. Appearing from late spring to late summer, the somewhat nodding lilac-blue or white blooms are singly borne on long peduncles that emerge from the bases of the dissected stem leaves. Butterflies and hummingbirds flock to the blooms. Several cultivars are available, including the floriferous House's Hybrids and the large-bloomed 'Fama'.
This handsome perennial grows best in full sun and fertile well-drained acid to alkaline soil. Deadhead regularly to encourage continued bloom. A splendid companion for summer-blooming campanulas, veronicas, foxgloves, and verbascums, it is a natural for perennial borders and cottage gardens. It is also excellent for cutting.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow indoors from February to April (4-6 weeks before last frost) or directly from April to June into finely prepared soil which has already been watered.
Barely cover as light aids germination. Germinate the seed in the warm, moist and dark. Place the whole seed tray inside a black plastic bin-liner and put it near your boiler or in your airing cupboard.
Seedlings usually appear in 14-35 days at +18-21C.
Check once a day for any sign of green. Once up, they'll need cool air and maximum light.
Water well until plants are established.
