SCABIOSA 'LILAC WONDER'
This stunning new plant is a selected form of Scabiosa africana from South Africa. Strong branching stems of frilly primrose-like leaves, produce a compact shrub. Then appears a succession of large, very lovely, pastel lilac flowers all summer long.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
