Scabiosa atropurpurea | Salmon Queen
Also known as Pin Cushion Flower and Sweet Scabious, Scabiosa "Salmon Queen" has soft rosy coloured flowers that are cottage garden favourites. Loved by both bees and butterflies, Salmon Queen has fragrant blooms and a long vase life. Happy in poor dry soil and once it is established it is fairly drought tolerant but some summer water is appreciated to improve the appearance and a longer flowering season.
An easy, low maintenance cut and come again cut-flower with long wiry stems. Cutting or deadheading often will extend flowering into late autumn. Birds love the dried seed heads that appear after flowering right through into winter so we leave our seedheads on for the birds. May self-sow if happy. Likes a sunny spot but will cope with some shade
Height 90cm x 45cm Wide
