Scabiosa Ace of Spades is the darkest variety of double Pincushion Flower available - truly almost black in color. A striking addition to Gothic and Mourning garden themes, this treasured heritage keepsake produces honey-scented 2" inch disk shaped flowers on 24" inch tall single stems. Popular among cut flower growers for its exceptional color, this variety is a pollinator attractant, deer resistant and if left to overwinter it will self-sow and return again next season once spring arrives. Packet: 50 seeds.
