Scabiosa Caucasica

How To Grow A Scabiosa Caucasica

Scabiosa caucasica, otherwise known as the pincushion flower, is a charming perennial in moderate regions and an annual in colder regions.  The flower receives its peculiar name from its even stranger appearance.  The stamens of the flower literally resemble quilting pins that have all been strategically stuck in a pincushion.

The leaves of the scabiosa caucasica are slender and the stems are quite long, growing to an average of three feet.  These flowers come in an array of colors including pink, lavender, white, yellow and wine.  When you purchase seeds you have the choice of planting them in the ground, peat pots or individual pots.
