Divided Scabiosa "Ace of Spades"

Scabious "Ace of Spades" (Scabiosa atropurpurea)

Flowering Annual - Edible?: Inedible

"Fully double, pin cushion flower heads which are as near to black as can be. Gently fragrant, they make good cut flowers and will no doubt cause interest in this haunting colour. Easy to grow and an excellent filler for the border."
