Scabiosa White - pincushion flower seeds

Scabiosa atropurpurea is one of the most productive and longest-flowering flowers that you can grow from seed. 'Tall Double White' blooms have delicate white petals that surround a domed, central cushion.

This invaluable plant will attract many butterflies and bees to the garden and the strong, straight stems last more than a week in the vase. Remove spent blooms regularly to keep them flowering throughout summer.
