The Pincushion (Scabiosa) is great flower to grow.
Love the centers of these flowers.
A wonderful cut flower and I did not realize the different colors they came in.
Hubby and I bought a large seed packet from our local garden center that carries Botanical Interests, Inc. This packet is called "Bring Home The Butterflies".
There is a mix of flower and herb seeds in this particular seed packet.
I thought we would see the usual lavender and white Pincushions.
But a few other colored Pincushions popped up.
They are prettier in person.
They attract a lot of butterflies and bees too.
Can you see the Praying Mantis in the Pinchusion? It blends so well into the flowers. I have not seen it lately. I think it went off to find its mate.
