Don't confuse these for the tangled brittle annual scabiosa. These are the long stemmed, large flowered perennial types. They flower the first year, and continue to bloom with continued harvest. Hardy to zone 5, I have overwintered them in the tunnel here in zone 3 with no additional cover or heat. Much more productive in year 2.
