The Scabious plants (Scabiosa in Latin) are easy to grow plants that require significant sunlight to bloom profusely. The majority of them are perennial and hardy, but some varieties have a short lifespan and they sometimes behave as annuals. These plants easily self-sow as long as the soil is light and well-draining. The flowers of these dipsacaceae are composed of crumpled petals in cream, white, blue, violet, or black, topped with a heart of the same color. Two of the trendiest varieties are Scabious 'Chile Black' and ochroleuca which are bushy, outgoing varieties with numerous small flowers; these can be planted in a dry, wild-looking or very mineral garden mixed with grasses. The more classic varieties: Scabiosa caucasica Fama, Perfecta, and Alba on the other hand, are more restrained, with large crumpled and structuring flowers, and will find their place in a mixed border planted with roses, perennial geraniums, peonies, or baby's breath. Easy to grow, scabious plants thrive in sunlight, in any type of well-draining, rich and light soil, some even tolerate rocky and poor soils. Their main enemy? Heavy, wet soils in winter.

You'll adore them!
