"Scabiosa atropurpurea is one of the longest-flowering and most glamorous of flowers that you can grow from seed. 'Tall Double Rose-Pink' blooms have delicate petals that surround a domed, dark centred cushion with contrasting white 'pins'. The flowers bob atop long stems that growing to 45 to 60cm (18 to 24in) tall and blooms consistently throughout the growing season, from early summer and right through to late autumn.
A prodigious bloomer and a tough, hardy garden performer Scabiosa atropurpurea grows quickly and is fast to flower. The flowers have the most delicious sweet perfume reminiscent of honey and marshmallows."
