Scabiosa atropurpurea White

Years ago, I planted a color mix of Scabiosa atropurpurea. The only one that has continued to self sow reliably is this beautiful, pure white flower. It looks wonderful with everything in the garden.

Scabiosa atropurpurea is a long-blooming annual. The pincushion-style flowers bloom from mid summer to late fall, attracting bees and butterflies. The sweetly fragrant flowers are nice for cutting.

In the north, start the seeds indoors to give them enough time to bloom and reseed before fall.

Scabiosa atropurpurea is an heirloom flower. Common names include Pincushion Flower, Sweet Scabious and Mourning Bride.
