Pincushion Flower Mix

Scabiosa atropurpurea

An excellent cut flower for displaying en masse.

Flowers are the cushions of life, there to soothe us through the intense and upsetting moments that are part of the human experience. They proclaim: Life persists! Beauty persists! Delight in color! Delight in the present moment! Pincushion Flower, also known as Scabiosa, speaks in a quiet but abundant way—its profuse compact blooms form a constellation above pretty leaves, and its naturally long stems make it great for cutting. In the home or in the garden, these pincushions will absorb your sharp edges.

Contains a range of colors including maroon, pink, rose, lavender, white, and dark purple.
