Perennial to USDA zone 2. With long stems and beautiful shades of white, lilac and blue, Isaac House Blend is an outstanding cut flower. The blossoms appear as fragile as summer snowflakes, but this is a tough, very hardy plant with few pests or diseases. Scabiosa is very easy to grow from seed, and blooms for an exceptionally long time in the garden compared to other flowering perennials. Dried seed heads also add interest to flower arrangements.
