    Scabiosa stellata, 'Sternkugel' or commonly known as Drumstick Scabious. However, its other common name describes it much better - Paper Moons! This is a hardy to half hardy annual which held up against my frosty winters. Its delicate soft blue flowers turn into delightful paper moons (seed pods). It is a must for cottage, meadow and cut flower gardens. Grow in full sun in well drained soil.

     

    Seeds pods will add a  sculptural element  to floral arrangements and will last several months without water.   Scabiosa is a cut-and-come-again flowering plant, which means the more you cut the flowers, the more flowers the plant will produce. 

     

    I direct sow my seeds after the danager of frost has passed.  However, you can start the plants in pots and transfer to the garden.  Germination takes 10-14 days at 20-25°C and will flower in around 14 weeks.
