Succisa pratensis

$14.00

Description

Calling all bees! Devil’s Bit Scabiosa is a see-through weaver in the garden, with 1″ rounded heads of lavender blossoms on 3′ stems in late summer and fall for us here in New England. Fun as a cut flower and a delightful surprise in the perennial or wild garden. Succisa is more often seen on plant lists in the UK than in America. It is native to Europe and southwestern Asia, but was introduced to North America and has naturalized in parts of New England. It is not considered invasive. Provide an evenly moist soil.
