Growing Hints: Purchase plants or start from seeds sown indoors a few weeks before your last frost date or sow them directly into the garden after the danger of frost has passed. Scabiosa is a low maintenance plant, but does not tolerate soggy soil-especially during the winter. Make sure your plants have proper drainage. If you have heavy soil, grow them in raised beds or improve soil drainage before planting. Divide clumps of plants every two to four years to prevent crowding.
Interesting Facts: Scabiosa is deer resistant and attractive to butterflies
