This Scabiosa produces 20-30cm stems long with spherical heads, each composed of soft Lavender Blue flowers tightly packed together. These quickly mature and fall, leaving a seed head that turns into a fascinating, burnished bronze flower ball, which is simply unreal. Stunning in both fresh and dried flower forms. Scabiosa requires light to germinate, so sprinkle seeds on the soil surface when sowing and check moisture levels regularly.
