Regular price $12.99 Sale

cabiosa (Scabiosa Atropurpurea Double Red) is named for the Latin word itch, was used as an herbal remedy to cure itching. The common name is Pincushion Flower because it resembles a pin cushion. It might have unusual names and have an interesting history but that does not change the fact that it is a gorgeous flower and enhances any landscape where it grows.

Propagated easily from Scabiosa seed, every garden should have a display of these lovely annuals. In the hotter climates, Scabiosa Pincushion would perform better with afternoon shade. The Pincushion Flower will self-sow, dropping its own flower seeds for next season's display.
