Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • Scabious 'Blue Diamonds' grows well in fertile, well-drained garden soil, in an area with complete sunshine. Prepare a suitable hole, loosen the soil and place the root ball of the scabious 'Blue Diamonds' at the correct depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below soil level. Fill with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Water regularly but do not overwater. During winter, the ground should not be too wet.
    Scabious 'Blue Diamonds' make an excellent pot plant
    As the flowers are so large and the flower stems are rather short, this double-flowered Scabious makes an excellent pot plant. The striking blue hue combines wonderfully with the fresh white lily 'Reines'. Choose a large pot and mix these two plants together, placing the lilies more towards the center.

    Scabiosa in winter
