- Stem Count: 10 stems
- Color: Red Burgundy OR Purple-leaning Burgundy **The color can be inconsistent as sometimes they will lean red and sometimes they will lean in the plum burgundy direction. As a florist, I know that the color is so dark it will look darkly saturated in photos.
- Season: All Year
- Flower Design Type: Luxury Accent Flower, but highly textured
- Special Care Note: Scabiosa stems typically come with a plastic 'straw' to keep the head from curving. Leave this on. If without straw, place in a tall, supportive vase to avoid strong curves
The Good: So sweet, it's like a crochet doily on a stem! They do not have to 'bloom' so they are good to go when you get'em. Very textured heads, which is nice if you're working with a lot of roses.
The Bad: Can be curvy with a droopy head. Has shorter vase life so keep in a cool location away from the sun. Scabiosa can have inconsistent color tones. Sometimes they can lean red-burgundy and sometimes they can lean purple burgundy. Sometimes Scabiosa will arrive not bloomed (without petals). They still lend a gorgeous texture to bouquets, bouts, and centerpieces!
- Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
- Keep away from heat or sun to extend vase life.

Flower Moxie reserves the right to make changes or substitutions. All substitutions are only done as a last resort, and only when the reasons for doing so are reasonable and genuine. For example, if a flower becomes unavailable (off-crop), incorrect color, or not in good condition to grace a wedding function we will substitute a flower that has a similar color and price-point.
Acceptable Subs: Cream Ranunculus; Lisianthus, Garden Roses; Spray Roses or another flower that works within your specific palette.
