Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Ace Of Spades'

A new plant to the gardens this year, and grown from seed, is the pin cushion flower Scabiosa atropurpurea 'Ace of Spades'. Several large specimens can be found together in the herbaceous border in amongst the dark succulant Aeonium arboreum Schwarzkopf. Dark plum, almost black in colour, the flowers are fully double with small white flecks creating the look of a pin cushion.
