The Latin name Scabiosa-scabious in English—is a cheerful meadow flower that adds a fun touch of old-world charm to any bouquet.

The pretty flower was actually given this name because the Romans used it as a remedy for skin diseases like scabies. Due to its shape, Scabiosa is also often referred to as the “pincushion flower”.

Originating in Southern Europe, Scabiosa is a member of the Honeysuckle family. With over 1000 species, it is a popular choice among gardeners around the world. It is easy to grow and makes a beautiful addition to a cut flower garden. It is also a favorite of butterflies and bees!
