An airy plant growing to 30", field scabious (Knautia arvensis
) is a tough perennial that is crowned with lovely lavender-blue pompom flowers for much of the summer. It makes a wonderful addition to bouquets and is irresistable to butterflies and beneficial insects. Native to French prairies.
Plant field scabious in well-drained soil in full sun to light shade 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.
