A highly sought-after cut flower that holds its own in the perennial flower garden. Flowers right through the summer months. The rare, purple-black pincushion flowers of this scabiosa are striking in the garden or as a feature plant in a pot. The flower fades through the season to a rich burgundy. In the garden, combine with wildflowers or prairie plants for a floriferous flower display.
Deadhead regularly to extend flowering season. Fertilise in spring. Divide every 3-4 years.
