This Scabiosa, or “pincushion flower” is an annual variety that will take the summer here until it starts to get super hot, then go dormant before making a comeback in the fall if you keep it’s feet from getting too hot. Afternoon shade is helpful. There is nothing like the “pincushion” atop the wiry stem to dance above the other flowers in the arrangement like Minnie Mouse in her tap shoes! A classic cottage garden addition to your cut flower collection. Available in a 4″ pot.
