Far and away the largest-flowered Scabiosa of all, the Fama series offers double blooms that begin in midsummer and just keep going, often into autumn in warm climates. Superb as cutflowers (they last a week or more in the vase!), these blooms open on 12-inch stems above 8-inch-high dense, tufted, bright green foliage that looks good even when not in flower. Find a place in the sunny garden for ‘Fama Deep Blue’ today!
The flowers reach 3 to 4 inches wide, with intense lilac-blue hues. This plant loves sunshine, needing shade only in the hottest parts of the country, and once established can survive periods of drought with very little trouble.
‘Fama Deep Blue’ reaches 12 to 18 inches wide, and should be deadheaded promptly to encourage the next flush of gorgeous blooms. Give it well-drained soil, pamper it the first season to get its roots established, and you’re off and running! And if you like ‘Fama Deep Blue,’ you must also try its white sister. Zones 4-10.
