Scabiosa Plants

Scabiosa Plants produce low mounds of ferny green foliage with wiry-stemmed flowers that bloom all summer long. They are very attractive to butterflies, birds and bees.


Scabiosa, pronounced skab-ee-OH-suh, also commonly called Pincushion, are terrific when planted as an edging, in containers or as a mass planting. Dead-heading the spent blooms will keep the plant blooming for a long period. Dividing the clumps every few years will rejuvenate the plants and freshen the bed, ensuring more seasons of colorful beauty.


All of our Scabiosa Plants for sale are shipped with very well-established root systems. They ship according to our Spring Shipping schedule. We guarantee them to arrive alive and thriving.
