Fata Morgana Scabiosa Seeds

A Fata Morgana is an optical illusion in which a ship way out at sea appears to be floating in the sky over the horizon. Bent light, etc. Very cool. You can look it up later. Anyway, we're digging the haunting, honey-scented, vintage feel of these buttercream buff-white counterparts to the Black Knight Scabiosa.

Scabiosa are an easy to grow and dependable burst of color. Sturdy little flowers on long stems rise above a pretty mound of foliage, and have a cottage garden feel with an urban edge.

Includes 50 seeds.
