There are a few perennials that I use a lot of because they are just great performers and scabiosa is one of those plants. It is just starting to bloom and it will stay in bloom throughout the summer. It has no problems with bugs or disease and the thing I really love about it is that it holds its flowers on tall slim stems that sway gracefully in the slightest breeze. Almost all of mine are lavender although I do have a white one. There is a beautiful deep purple variety that I have put in on a couple occasions but it does not seem to come back the following year so I am just happy with the easy going, prolific lavender ones!
