Late Summer

This Scabosia adds interest to the edge of the border. The colours are light and livens up the area. It does not grow more than about 12 inches(30cm) and the flowers are on a long pedicel, which makes them ideal for cut flowers. It also reminds me of wild flowers in a hay field. I have been unlucky in overwintering them, but they are readily available from good nurseyies.
