Scabiosa General Information

Scabiosa are extremely long-blooming compact, clump-forming perennials with uniquely shaped, eye-catching flowers. Multiple pincushion-shaped flowers produced all season. Shades of purples, blues and pinks. Needs well drained soil. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Scabiosa Plant Care

Prefers average fertile soil with good winter drainage. Can be divided every 3 - 4 years in spring if needed. Cut off dead outer leaves in spring if needed. Remove spent blossoms to extend bloom time. Old flowering stems can be cut back for winter, but leave new growth at base to overwinter.
