With charm to sway, this undemanding Scabiosa celebrates a seemingly endless supply of pincushion-style flowers in hushed lemon shades. Finely dissected gray-green foliage furnishes a tasteful, soft-looking tuft from which wiry branched stems arise. A first-rate cut flower, the carefree display is heightened by intriguing etched green buds, and happily lends itself to a cottage garden or a more natural setting.
