Plants I'm Growing--First Blooms: Scabiosa Farinosa

First blooms of 2011 yesterday on the low-growing scabiosa Scabiosa farinosa. This has been a very tough, reliable, drought-tolerant plant--much more robust than most scabiosas. It has pretty, glossy leaves and small, neat lilac-colored flower heads. Scabiosa farinosa bloomed on May 4 in 2009 and April 20 in 2010, calculating years from first flower to first flower of 351 days and 362 days.
