Scabious, Devil's-bit (Succisa pratensis) Seeds

Though its pincushion-like, protruding anthers amidst indigo petals seem a little strange, we promise there’s nothing diabolical about the devil’s-bit scabious. In fact, its name comes from its shallow roots, which according to folklore were bitten short out of jealousy for the flower’s beauty… and, being pollen-rich and beloved by bees,  it’s safe to say this flower is actually a devilishly good addition to a garden!
