Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Burgundy Beau' reviews
Lovely, but colour not like website photo
Reviewed 16th September 2016 by Catherine Rosenthal
I would be in agreement with the previous review on this. They have produced prolific and enormous cut flowers (for a scabious). But the colour is really a red wine colour (I suppose the clue is in the name), and nothing like the luscious purple shown on the website. However it is a superb doer! Incredibly easy to grow and great germination rate-very close to 100%.
More red than purple but very interesting

These were some of the last of my seedling cut flowers to flower and as stunning as they are I was taken aback that they really are red in colour, very little hint of purple!
