perfect for pollinators

Also known as  Pin Cushion Flower and Sweet Scabious, Scabiosa "Black Knight" has beautiful dark maroon almost black flowers that are cottage garden favourites. The new flowers before opening look like black jubes, you can see one in the background of the photograph. Loved by both bees and butterflies, Black Knight has fragrant blooms and a long vase life, even the buds before they open look great cut and mixed with the open flowers. 

An easy, low maintenance cut and come again cut-flower with long wiry stems. Cutting or deadheading often will extend flowering into late autumn.  Birds love the dried seed heads that appear after flowering right through into winter so we leave our seedheads on, and also think bunches of seed heads look great in a vase. Will self-sow. Happiest in sun but will cope with a little bit of shade.

Height 90cm x 45cm Wide

Short lived Perennial | Will self-sow but will not come true so maybe a pale mauve colour but still very pretty!

Plant size: PB2 - Equivalent 1.2 litres
