Scabiosa stellata

Regular price $12.00 Save $-12.00

perfect for pollinators

These plants start off with a soft lavender coloured flower which is beautiful in itself but the next stage is a papery hexagonal honeycomb flower ball taht is held on long stems so perfect for cutting.  The papery bracts of Scabiosa stellata add a new dimension to the garden. These flowers are also known as paper moons or starflowers. 

The plants are grown primarily for their striking seedheads and the everlasting heads dry beautifully and can be used in dried floral work or beautiful in bouquets.

All scabious prefer well-drained soil and a sunny position. Only water in an extended drought and do not apply large doses of fertiliser as flowering will be suppressed.

When autumn arrives, don't be too quick to pull up old plants as. birds will appreciate a snack on their seedheads. Any seeds that they miss may drop to the ground and you may find you have a few seedlings popping up next year.

Scabiosa is a "cut-and-come-again" bloomer, meaning that the sooner you cut the flowers, the quicker new buds will pop up to replace them. These plants flower profusely. Cut flower stems can be harvested, when the flower show colour. Put the stems in warm water immediately. As cut flowers, they can last up to a week in the vase. Loved by bees and butterflies.

A perfect choice for a cottage garden, Cut Flower patch and for bee and butterfly-friendly plantings.

Looks beautiful in a bunch of cut flowers with Delphinium Misty Lavender and Phlox drummondii Creme Brulee.
