A posy of pincushion flowers

Scabiosa bouquet
Scabiosa floral display
This gorgeous bunch of blooms is made up predominantly of red and purple scabiosa, also known as pincushion flower. There are some dahlias in there too (see the hint of yellow in the background?) and what looks to be thyme leaves. I couldn’t think of anything yummier! Beautifully romantic blooms and a pretty aroma.

Scabiosa have a long flowering period and are great for picking. They’re best in full sun, but other than that they have very little demands.
