Scabiosa Caucasica ‘Fama’

Trial: Annual

Years Trialed: 1996

Good Qualities:

Easy to grow plants (3); Hardy, excellent germination, flowers first year.; Good strong color and pest and disease free.; No bug problems. Ours grew but did not bloom this summer until fall and cooler weather (Stillwater, OK). The few blooms we got this year were very large and a beautiful, the florists will go nuts over them.

Problems:

Coloring very similar to the ‘Butterfly Blue’ Scabiosa. I could see no difference.; Uneven germination and a very slow starter, will see how it performs as a perennial.

Comments:

We expect big things from this Scabiosa.
