Scabiosa Atropurpurea 'Beaujolais Bonnets'
These gorgeous first year flowering perennials come in a dazzling mixture of all colours from mauve to deepest red all with contrasting white stamens and ruffled outer petals. It's not just butterflies that love these lovely, sweetly fragrant, easy-to-grow, ever-popular and very rewarding; humans are happy to find room for them too! Moderately fast growing, they give a profusion of double pincushion flowers, two inches or so across, on tall, strong stems. Blooming from summer into early autumn, they will give a touch of class to your border and supply you with some excellent cut flowers.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
