If I was a lyricist, I would write songs about Pin Cushion, aka Scabiosa. They are happiest in the sun. Start seeds indoors or direct sow after threat of last frost has passed. Plant 6-12” apart. Barely cover with soil as light helps with germination, can successively plant every 2-3 weeks. Each packet contains about 75 seeds. Will yield a rich purple, blue hued dye.

 

            

 

All bedhead fiber seeds have been sourced from farms within the US and are non-gmo.

The image with the sample colors is just a variety of the results that can be achieved. Many variables, such as pH, water hardness vs softness, time of harvest, and quantity can effect the colors.
