Like a puff of smoke, I love this light and airy mix of soft colours and haze-forming shapes, studded through with the starry seedheads of scabious and pink paper daisies. This looks wonderful fresh and just as good a month later, dried in the vase.This collection contains 5 seedlings each of:
- Scabiosa stellata 'Sternkugel'
