Buy Scabiosa 'Pink Mist' pincushion flower / scabious: Beautiful contrast of foliage and flowers

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Soft, button-like flowerheads appear for a long period throughout the summer on branching, wiry stems. These hover above the mounds of fern-like grey-green foliage, which contrasts well with their soft pink colouring. A delightful perennial for a sunny herbaceous border or wildflower garden, where they will thrive in well drained, neutral to alkaline soils.

  • Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back the faded flower stems in autumn.

These last for absolutely ages and are a great addition to a relaxed flowerbed

Planted this scabiosa in March this year and it has flowered well with delicate pink blooms, but is still quite small. I am hoping in time it will expand and fill the space more. Nonetheless it is a healthy plant, and I try to constantly deadhead it to encourage repeat flowering.

Beautiful flowers, that kept going the whole way through summer with continuous dead-heading. Very attractive to bees. Highly recommended.

These lovely plants produce a succession of lily-like flowers each of which lasts for just one day. At first, this seems rather disappointing, but they are such bright, exotic flowers and produced in such profusion that this isn't actually a drawback. In
