(the Hummingbird Moth is NOT included!) :o)
Here is an old-fashioned favorite with a new color! Scabiosa produces flat quilled flowers ideal for cutting and perfect for attracting butterflies. The "Hummingbird Moth" was a frequent visitor this summer and it was plain to see that these were its favorite! Landscape uses for Scabiosa include borders and massing, but ideally these plants provide color to any part of your garden. Sow seeds outdoors as soon as ground can be worked or start indoors for blooms the same year! These are cool season plants by nature so they are ideal for zones 2-6. The prefer average well drained soil.
