Scabiosa stellata ‘Ping Pong’
Scabiosa ‘Ping Pong’ is back! I stopped stocking it for a time as it was tremendously challenging to get my mitts on top quality stock. However…seek and ye shall find… ‘Ping Pong’ is usually grown for its splendid flower heads. The spherical seed heads are a silvery colour similar (in colour, not shape) to the seed heads of Honesty (Lunaria). The flowers themselves are, to my mind, very underrated…they are a faded denim blue and the bees love hanging out on them.
