Big, creamy-white flowers

Scabiosa caucasica is a species native to the Caucasus, northern Iran and north-east Turkey, where it is found in subalpine grassland and sunny rocky slopes between 1900 m and 2900 m in altitude.

A little background:

It was only after 1803, with seeds collected in the Caucasus, that Scabiosa caucasica was cultivated in England. Following the hybridization that was then carried out, the James House nursery near Bristol in the UK produced Scabiosa caucasica 'Miss Willmott’ at the end of the 19th century, named after the celebrated English gardener Ellen Willmott’ (1858-1934). This was followed in 1929 by the cultivar Scabiosa caucasica 'Clive Greaves’ with sweet, lavender-blue flowers.

Scabiosa caucasica 'Miss Willmott’ has a long summer flowering period with big, solitary, floral heads, of a superb white, 6 to 8 cm in diameter, and borne on sturdy stems 50 cm to 80 cm tall.

Accompanying plants: roses, Anthemis, Sedum spectabile, Cephalaria, Veronica, Artemisia 'Powis Castle'.

Grow in the sun in light, moderately fertile, well-drained (mainly sandy) soil, which is neutral to alkaline.

Maintenance: Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Cut back the plant in autumn. Avoid heavy, damp soils.
