Abutilon 'Orange Hot Lava', summertime, fire flowers
Pincushion Flower 'Perfect Alba' Scabiosa caucasica - Blooms are 3" across and make a lovely cut flower. A reliable perennial in Zones 4-8.
Astrantia Superstar (syn 'White Giant') - The large, greenish-white flowerheads look like pincushions surrounded by a spidery ruff of green-tinted, white bracts. These are produced en masse above the lobed, dark green leaves from early summer to autumn adding bobbles of colour to the border. Astrantias have become the 'darlings of the designers' in recent years as they lend themselves to most styles of planting, and mix happily with most plants.
