Product description

Renee's Garden - Cottage garden favorites since the colonial era, scabiosas’ tightly closed buds look like Victorian brooches which unfold into densely petaled, frilly centered flowers. Perfect for sunny borders, these long-stemmed 2 to 3-inch “pincushion” flowers attract Monarch, Fritillary, and Skipper butterflies throughout the summer. Our premium Dutch selection is more upright in habit and contains all the best old-fashioned colors including deep crimson, mulberry, soft salmon, rose pink, lilac and white.
