Scabiosa atropurpurea

Scabiosa atropurpurea Scabious

Escobilla morisca

This lovely Scabious varies in colour from pink to mauve, and this one really was this bright. They grow from 30~80cms tall on a single stem and flower in the mountains from May to August. They can be found in flower all year near to the coast. It is native to southern Europe, north Africa and western Asia. It has now naturalised on many continents.
