Description

Scabiosa 'Flutter Rose Pink' is a beautiful pincushion floral display of delicately informal blooms. A hardy perennial of informal beauty suits a country cottage garden or rockery perfectly. This compact plant flirts with wildlife with a delicate yet ambient rose-pink colour pincushion bloom born on lance shaped, grey-green leaves. The beautifully elegant colour of this dear Scabiosa looks absolutely fantastic against a worn brick wall or a backdrop of gravel to set off a country garden aesthetic. 'Flutter Rose Pink' is low-lying and so fits into your borders in those gaps that we don’t quite know what to do with.  Once you pop it into its home, it will throw out plumes of colour all Summer long. Once the flowers fade, a quick deadhead, and it will flower again and again between July and September. No longer used to treat Scabies by the Romans, however it’s Latin name ‘to scratch’ lingers on as bees and other wildlife use its high in pollen flowers to deliver and collect. It’s blooms also hold seeds for birds, so it really does form a wealth of activity in your garden! Scabiosa 'Flutter Rose Pink' is a perennial that is very easy to care for and requires little maintenance.  It enjoys full sun and partially sheltered spots in the garden with moist but well drained soil.

Planting Conditions

Scabiosa Flutter Rose likes any position in the garden with a light to full level of sun. It prefers a sunny, but sheltered position and grows well in rich, fertile soils provided they are moist, but well-drained. Sand or grit can be added to support drainage when being planted. You can tell if your soil is healthy if there is plenty of underground activity such as plant growth, earthworms and fungi. Alternatively, you can purchase a testing kit which will let you know what type of soil you have.

Watering & Feeding

We advise watering regularly when in containers, or until well established. At this stage your Scabiosa will thrive on natural rainfall. The best way to fertilise your Scabiosa is by removing any mulch and adding a 1-inch layer of compost. This is best done at the beginning of the spring to give your blooms a boost.

General Care

Scabiosa will reliably flower all summer if you dead head the spent flowers away, this will encourage the plant to keep producing new puffs of pincushion blooms. You may also cut back the faded flower stems in autumn, to encourage growth back into the root. Scabiosa’s like a well-drained soil so if your soil is far too heavy then your Flutter Rose would probably fare better in pots, containers or even window boxes.
