Botanical Interests "Isaac House Blend" Scabiosa Seeds

Perennial to USDA zones 2. Blooms early summer through fall. Full sun or light shade. 18 to 24" tall. 18" wide. A charming, traditional cottage garden beauty also known as Pincushion Flower, Scabiosa Isaac House Mix has 3"-4" flowers with an outer frill of pink, white, or lavender blue petals and a center 'pincushion' that is white with pinkish pins. A very tough and carefree addition to any garden, despite its blossoms that look as fragile as summer snowflakes. Versatile enough to grace a formal flower border or decorate a more casual wildflower or meadow area. Rarely bothered by any sort of pest or disease, it also blooms for an exceptionally long period for a perennial. Prefers full sun in coastal or cool overcast regions. Partial shade is better in areas with intensely hot or humid summers. Likes well-drained, rich, alkaline soil. Very intolerant of soggy soil. Pinch off faded flowers to prolong bloom period even further. Loose mulch is recommended for crowns in winter. Wonderfully long stems make a great cut flower, and the dried seed heads can be used in flower arrangements. Native to the Mediterranean, especially the Caucasus mountains.

When to plant outside: Sow in spring after average last frost date and when soils have warmed up. Or, sow in summer at least 6 weeks before average first fall frost date.

When to start inside: Sow 4-6 weeks before average last frost.

Special Germination Instructions: Germination is best when soil temperatures are 70 to 75 degrees. "
