Scabiosa stellata Drumsticks features pale blue, disk like pincushion flowers, a sweet addition to any garden style. This garden beauty is coveted for its delightful decorative seed heads! Papery, bronze colored, three dimensional geometric globe-shaped seed heads are 1.5" to 3" inches on 24" to 32" inches tall, sturdy, straight stems. These artful, translucent green seedpod heads with bronze veining are constructed of delicate, parchment style, angular cuplettes that have starry eyed centers. They add both dimension and textural beauty to any garden bed or focal planting. A highly prized floral design favorite, these decorative beauties are used both fresh and dried. A favorite of friendly pollinators, especially bees and butterflies, this half hardy annual can get an early start in the spring and will bloom through first frost. In zones 8-11 this variety may self sow and return again next year. Harvest the seedpod globes as the starry centers are just turning to black. If you wait too long to harvest, the globes will shatter. Packet: 50 seeds.
