Black Knight Scabiosa Seeds

Black Knight Scabiosa Seeds

Captivating Black Blooms

A striking perennial addition for any garden. Known scientifically as Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Black Knight,' this cultivar showcases rich, velvety, near-black blooms atop sturdy stems. Ideal for enthusiasts seeking an elegant and contrasting flower, the Black Knight Scabiosa is a native of Europe and North Africa, historically found in meadows and grasslands.

Thriving in moderate climates, these seeds prefer well-draining soil and ample sunlight, flourishing best in USDA hardiness zones 3-9. Their easy-to-grow nature makes them suitable for both experienced gardeners and newcomers. The plant's height reaches approximately 24-36 inches, adorned with deep, dark flower heads, attracting pollinators like bees and butterflies.

The blossoms are excellent for fresh or dried arrangements, making them a versatile choice for floral enthusiasts. To harvest, trim the stems once the flowers have fully opened, encouraging further flowering by deadheading spent blooms regularly. Patience is rewarded as the plant flowers from late spring well into the fall, adding an extended allure to your garden.

Include Black Knight Scabiosa in your garden to experience the allure of its captivating dark blooms, enhancing the aesthetic of any landscape with its unique and timeless beauty.
