Availability: In Stock

With long stems and beautiful shades of white, lilac, and blue, Isaac House Blend is outstanding in bouquets. The blossoms appear as fragile as summer snowflakes, but this is a tough, fairly drought-tolerant, very hardy plant with few pests or diseases. Scabiosa blooms for an exceptionally long time in the garden compared to other flowering perennials, and is very attractive to bees and butterflies. Dried seed heads also add interest to flower arrangements.

Not So Great

2 out of 5 stars Jan 5, 2021
Zone 5b Colorado. The first attempt at starting these seeds failed. I got additional seeds to germinate and grow, but the seedlings could have too damp during temperature fluctuations in a greenhouse. These didn't seem to do well after transplanting either and grew little over the summer, but maybe the strongest will come back this year. In all fairness, I may have overestimated their hardiness based on the description, and should have paid them a little more attention.

Owner Response: Hi Lauren, Scabiosa, like other perennials, does tend to take off in their second year. We did have a hot, hot, spring and summer this year on the Colorado Front Range and that did stifle transplants to an extend this year. Happy gardening!
