Growing Scoop Scabiosa, Live

Focal Scoop Scabiosa at Danziger Trial Garden in Israel


From plug to bloom, flower farmers and floral designers are kids in a candy store shopping Scoop Scabiosa 'Marshmallow', 'Lollipop' and 'Pink Peppermint’. Scoop Scabiosa, Focal Scoop and BonBon Scoop are fluffy, lush, dramatically larger than their predecessors, and almost too productive to keep up with harvesting! 

Bred by Danziger in Israel, Bailey brought these revolutionary varieties to small- and medium-sized American growers back in 2016. Join us in celebrating seven seasons of Scoops with a How-To Grow chat and viewer Q&A on Instagram Live, on Wednesday, June 7 at Noon ET/ 9am PT/ 5pm GMT

Bailey will also provide growing tips for Danziger’s superior Veronica, Hypericum, Gypsophila, Caryopteris, Lepidium, Statice and Solidago, all products we expect to restock on July 3 with our fall-planted crops update at 

Farmer Bailey Customers Adore Scoop Scabiosa

"They overwintered soo well for us here in 6B! Game changer! Unheated tunnel with an extra layer of frost fabric. We got down to 0° this winter and they didn’t flinch."  ~ Moonshot Farm

Harvesting these lovely pincushion flowers and a few other gorgeous flowers this morning for a local florist. This one’s called Bon Bon Scoop French Vanilla. We are super happy with the plugs we got from @farmerbaileyplugs last fall! These plants are pushing 5’ tall! ~ Skywyld Farm

First fistful of Scoops! Because that sounds so much better than fistful of Scabs. Love these guys, they come on strong for us during the gap between Spring and Summer blooms. Color is: ‘Marshmallow’.   ~ Pixie Dust Flower Farm

We are in a bit of a crop transition, (post-hail, post peonies) but lots of new good things are on the horizon. Like these amazing ‘French Vanilla’ Scoop Scabiosa.  ~ Whipstone Farm

My focal Scabiosa is taller than me!! The flower heads are huge. Why would anybody grow it from seed after this? A serious question. Worlds apart from the scrawny little things I used to grow! I was nervous to take the $$$ plunge but glad I did. Now to keep up with the harvest! They are on the daily harvest list! I don’t know how long we can hold out before they take us over. I’m not a big Scabiosa person just for this reason, but I wanted a big head like I see in all the “seed” catalogs just once! ~ Mimo Loves Flowers
