Fama Deep Blue Scabiosa Plants

*beep* Hey, gardener, hey. It's me, Fama calling again. My schedule is open and my periwinkle blooms are super big and fun. Floriculture and chill? Give me a shout. *beep*

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.

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the spring, After your last frost. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms All summer!
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick blooms to encourage more
Extra Credit Foliage is evergreen in mild climates (leaves stay green through winter)
