White Scabious

With its pure white blooms waving gently in the breeze on wiry stems, Scabiosa caucasica Alba is a beautiful and delicate to way to add a feel of airy grace into your garden. It is one of the Perfecta Series of Scabious, or Pincushion flower, with larger blooms as much as 8cm across. The outer petals are much frillier than you would see in an ordinary Scabious, too.

Reaching 60cm tall, these clump-forming perennials' flowers will grace your sunny borders from July to September. Perfect for attracting wildlife into the herbaceous border, do take a look at our extensive selection of herbaceous plants for a show-stopping summer of shape and colour.

Great In Your Garden...

Why choose this white Scabious? Well, it's perfect for a sunny wildlife or cottage garden, being a magnet for bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects. Team it with other wildlife-friendly, sun-loving perennials like Achilleas, or Verbascum Violetta. For the best effect, plant in large groups to produce a natural, billowing effect rather than dotting single plants around.


Scabiosa caucasica Alba makes excellent cut flowers for informal arrangements and posies. Keep cutting the ends off the stems to encourage water uptake and make the blooms have a longer vase life.

As Scabious won't tolerate acid or heavy, cold soils with excessive winter wet, grow them in a raised bed or in large pots if your soil doesn't suit the plant's needs.
