Unique flowers make this a great plant for landscape edges. Make sure to double-check the scientific name on this plant before you buy it from the nursery. The annual version, Scabiosa atropurpurea, is considered invasive in our area. If the annual version naturalizes in a field, it tends to form a monoculture, which tends to choke out other native species.
