Product description

Seed Exchange - These stunning, dark-maroon flowers have enchanted gardeners (and bees and butterflies) since the early 1600s in England, when the variety was called ‘Blackamoor’s Beauty’ and ‘Mournful Widow.’ The honey-scented flowers have blooms that measure from 1½-2.5" and resemble a dark-satin pincushion with white-tipped pins. The versatile variety works well in both borders and garden beds, and its long stems make it ideal for fresh cutting. (Scabiosa atropurpurea)
