HEIRLOOM Straight from the pages of a child’s storybook, we love the straight (if marvelously wandering) stems of Merlot’s flowers as well as her fabulous seed pods. Tolerant of many soil types, scabiosa is easy to grow and impressively abundant even in short seasons. We love to watch the diversity of beneficial pollinators flocking to her prolific blooms, including lacewings and ladybugs as well as butterflies.
