Scabiosa Caucasica ‘Fama Deep Blue’ has lovely intense lilac-blue 10cm flowers which have a silvery grey centre, and are held above the foliage on long strong stems. The flowers are perfect to use as cut flowers, and they are reputed by florists to be the best Scabiosa strain for cutting. The plant grows in dense mounds of pointed grey green leaves.
It is very easy to grow, and is hardy to below -18°C and will flower in its first year from an early sowing.
Scabiosa bloom all summer long and will still be producing blooms well into autumn. Bees and butterflies love them
They prefer well-drained soil and a sunny position. They dislike cold, wet winters and hot, humid weather and do best in temperate conditions. In spring fertilise moderately. Don’t fertilise after Spring.
Scabiosa caucasica has long stems that initially produce one large flower. You can cut the dying flower stem back to the lowest buds, halfway down, and then two slightly shorter-stemmed flowers will spring from the bud axils. Deadheading encourages plants to flower for a prolonged period.
