White Scabiosa - Scabiosa Columbaria Seeds - Fragrant, Beautiful, and Prolific

Quantity: 25 Seeds


White Scabiosa is a member of the teasel family, Dipsacaceae. It's a hardy perennial down to zone 5, but can be grown as an annual just about everywhere else. It thrives in many soil types, but prefers to have a good amount of moisture in the soil.


Scabiosa flowers have such a rich and complex aroma, and are an excellent addition to just about any flower arrangement. They're also a great source of nectar, so they attract bees and other pollinators alike. Planting scabiosa anywhere near the garden will increase pollination of crops and other plants in the area due to the increase of pollinators they attract.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    It's best to start Scabiosa seeds in late winter or early spring; we start them in early April here at the farm. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take between 2-3 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when chances of frost have passed.
