CAUCASIAN SCABIOUS

Family DIPSACEAE
Scabiosa caucasica
Perennial

The Caucasian Scabious is, as the name implies, a native of the Caucasus and is the finest of the perennial species for the flower border.
The plant comprises a dense tuft of foliage, the upper portions of the leaves being cut and divided.
The flowers, borne on stems up to two feet high, are three to four inches across and comprise broad ray petals of lavender-blue radiating from a cushion-like centre.

The many garden varieties have superseded the type, having larger flowers that range in colour from white to lavender-blue, mauve and deep blue. Scabiosa columbaria is similar in all respects but colour, which is an attractive mauve-pink, and the plant lacks the robust character of the Siberian species.

Well-drained medium to light loam, rich in humus, is necessary, and it is essential to dress the ground above the roots with lime regularly in spring and autumn.

Propagate by division, cuttings or from seed.

The flowering season is from early summer until autumn.

Scabious – Perennial
Hardy Perennial.

The varieties of perennial Scabious desirable for general gardening are Scabious Caucasica, and Scabious gigantea.

In both the shape of the flowers is the same as in the “German” varieties, a cushioned centre of thick-set florets, with a border of wider guard-petals.

In Caucasica the colour is a very lovely and distinct shade of mauve or lilac-blue, with a pinkish under-tinge; the plant grows from two to three feet high, and flowers in July.
It should be given an open situation and plenty of space in a border of deep soil.
Unfortunately it is not a “good doer”, and is apt, after a season’s flowering, to disappear.
There is also a white-flowered form.

Gigantea reaches a height of six or seven feet, with stout stem and bold foliage; the flowers are of a light creamy yellow, and are freely produced.
Good garden soil, with plenty of space and air, are its main requirements.; it must not be starved for moisture.
Both these kinds may be planted in early spring.

Scabious Caucasica may be raised from seed sown on moderate heat in arch, forwarded as a half-hardy annual, and planted out in its flowering quarters when spring frosts are past.
