Scabiosa stellata Ping Pong is a flower primarily grown for its outstanding textural seed pods that are highly sought after in the world of floral artistry and among landscapes with a focus towards diverse architectural interest. Typical Scabiosa type blooms produce exceptional globe shaped seed pods that are comprised of tightly knit, pleated parchment calyx umbels with a dark veining star shaped pattern in the center of each one. Fantastic cut fresh or used in dried flower form. Stems average 30" inches tall and are also known as Paper Moons or Star Flowers. A particular favorite of butterflies, if left to overwinter this variety will self-sow seed in warmer zones. Packet: 50 seeds.
