91-105 days. HiGro Mix scabiosa seeds grow a playful and unique variation to a summertime favorite. HiGro Mix seeds grow hardy, drought tolerant 18-24 inch tall scabiosas bursting with an elegant mix of 3 inch lavender, purple, periwinkle, blush, and ivory blooms. HiGro Mix seeds are an ideal grow for indoors, patios, or for accenting a flower bed or walkway. Scabiosa HiGro Mix seeds promise to attract bees and butterflies to keep your garden healthy and abundant.
For early blooming, start HiGro Mix scabiosa seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before final frost date. Scabiosa seeds will germinate in 14-21 days. Once germinated, move to fluorescent grow light until two sets of true leaves have developed. Transplant HiGro Mix scabiosa seedlings to indoor container or pot and "“harden off" if transplanting outside. Scabiosa seeds can also be sown directly once the frost has passed, but blooming will occur late into the season. For direct sowing, lightly cover 3-4 HiGro Mix scabiosa seeds in soil with 12-18 inches apart in light, loamy, and well-drained soil in full sun. Scabiosa must have well-drained soil because plants can be susceptible to mold and stem rot. Avoid overhead watering by watering soil directly to minimize wetting foliage. Plants will benefit from partial shade during severe summers. Scabiosa has no serious pests or diseases, but monitor regularly for aphids and whiteflies. HiGro Mix scabiosa seeds will mature in 91-105 days as 18-24 inch tall bushy uprights with 12-18 inch spreads stemmed in 3 inch lavender, purple, periwinkle, blush, and ivory blooms.
Scabiosa caucasia is native to the Caucasus mountains that run east to west between the Black and Caspian seas of Russia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan. It is also commonly known as Pincushion Flower or Caucasian scabious and is a famously nectar-rich variety attractive to many butterflies, bees, and other important insects and pollinators.
