When the flowers in your hands look so good you want to set your teeth in it to have a taste, you know you have something special within reach. The Scabiosa Scoop® varieties from Danziger are brightly colored, cushion-shaped flowers - all with their own unique characteristics - and give you the feel of buying a box of petit fours from a fancy pastry shop in Paris. 

Danziger Introduces 17 Scabiosa Scoop Varieties

With names like Blackberry Scoop, Lavender Scoop, Red Velvet Scoop, and Cotton Candy Scoop, this special line of scabiosa flowers sounds as appetizing as it looks. Over the last few years, breeder Danziger has done a complete makeover of this product, introducing varieties to the market that are larger, fuller, more ball-shaped, and fit into a much wider range of color palettes.

A Trending Flower

The Scabiosa Scoop flowers belong to the Dipsacaceae family and are often referred to as 'pincushion' flowers. The flowers are borne on inflorescences in the form of heads; each head contains many small florets, cupped in a saucer-shaped bract. The calyx has five sepals that are almost as long as the petals. After the flowers have dropped, the calyces together with the bracts form a spiky ball that sometimes looks eerily similar to a pincushion, hence its common nickname. 

 

 

With the introduction of the Scabiosa Scoop collection, the flowers have grown enormously in popularity in recent years. A versatile flower that gets appreciated because of the cheerful touch it adds to floral arrangements and spring bouquets. And the great thing about scabiosa is that they look beautiful with their petals wide open but can also be used raw. Due to its lovely, soft appearance, it's great to use in bridal work but it's also a fantastic flower for everyday field bouquets.

So Many Different Scabiosa Scoop to Choose From

The Scabiosa Scoop series is cut quite raw to ensure the best vase life possible. And then, once you put them in a vase, they start unfolding petal by petal and the spectacle begins. The flower's extra fluffy, rich texture is a great addition to a flower arrangement or a bouquet. Featuring strong stems, a vastly-improved vase life, a wide range of colors (there are even two-toned flowers available!) in different sizes and shapes, there's a Scoop scabiosa to enjoy for everyone.
