Scabiosa - Dwarf Double Mixed
Fragrant, fully double and relatively compact. These are lovely 'cushion' flowers in maroon, carmine, scarlet, pink, rose and white. Ideal in groups for border or as cut flowers when they last well in water.
Best sown where they are to flower in spring. Sow 3mm (1/8in) deep in rows 30cm (12in) apart in well cultivated soil which has been raked to a fine tilth.
Thin out the seedlings to 3cm (12in) apart. They prefer light, well drained soil and an open sunny position.
