The scabious genus contains roughly 80 species of annuals, perennials, and a few biennials.  
Naturally found along rocky slopes and dry meadows in the Mediterranean area, Europe, Asia,
Africa, Japan, and the Caucasus.  Our perennial scabiosa plant offerings excel in bloom quality,
ease of culture, and garden performance.
Scabiosa (Pincushion Flower) Growing Tips
  • Plant in a well-drained soil that has been slightly enriched with organic matter.
  • Do not provide a rich garden soil, as these are waste land plants, and will grow lanky in
    soils high in organic matter.  Well-drained mineral soils are best.
  • Before planting make sure the pH of your soil is within a 5.5-7.0 for optimum growth
    and flowering.
  • Scabiosa plants thrive in full sun and do not perform as well in partial shade.
  • To encourage continuous blooming cut all spent flowering stalks to basal rosette of
    leaves before they are allowed to seed out.
