Pincushion 'Fata Morgana'

Scabiosa atropurpurea

This uniquely colored pincushion variety is an exciting new introduction from the Netherlands. Delicate, button-like flowers are a lovely blend of blush and buttercream and I’m positive they’ll be on every floral designer’s must have list in the coming season. In addition to being a fantastically productive cut flower, this darling is loved by bees and butterflies too.
