Average to wet soils--Devil's bit scabious

 
 
 
 
Bring the beauty and butterflies of a French meadow to your garden with this little-known wildflower. Devil's bit scabious (Succisa pratensis), in spite of its unattractive name, is as pretty as can be, with long, willowy stems (30")topped with globose, pincushion-flower-like blossoms of lavender blue. Blooming from midsummer through fall, devil's bit scabious does a great job of bringing color to your garden or meadow when many other perennials have stopped blooming.

Plant devil's bit scabious in relatively rich soil that is not too heavy, in sun or light shade. It enjoys a spot that is average to wet in moisture level. Sow the seed from spring through early fall.

I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
