Info: Pincushion Flower Imperial Mix is an annual that grows 50-60 cm tall and is native to southern Europe. The flowers look like pincushions on sturdy stems and come in a mix of pink, rose, lavender and white. Their sweet fragrance is attractive to most pollinators including butterflies & bees and they make excellent cut flowers.
