|Scabiosa stellata 'Ping Pong'|
|Native to southern Europe, this most unusual plant produces fragrant, pale-blue spherical flower heads, but is grown primarily for the seed heads which follow... these are silvery and surrounded by unusual maroon and green bracts. They make a wonderful cut flower and dry extremely well.
Jumbo plug plants, when available, will be ready to plant out but may need some protection from slugs, etc. at first. If concerned, grow them on in pots until they are a little larger.
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Best sown direct in late spring, approx 1cm deep, but can also be raised earlier in pots under cover.|
