'Fata Morgana'  

NEW FOR 2022! Perhaps the most subtle color in the scabiosa palette, a creamy hue like Swallowtail butterflies that can vary toward apricot with the slightest pink blush, but never toward lemon. Looking at the other colors in this species, I’ve wondered where this pigment came from; it just doesn’t look related to the purple/blue/red spectrum of the species. I see other species in the genus with yellow or cream flowers, so the genus has the potential. Eventually, I found that this variety was introduced by the famous collector/breeders at SAHIN in 1995. It is not the “recent breakthrough” that a quick scan of recent seed catalogs would lead you to believe. Reminiscent of a joke between me and Karen: Overnight success takes about 15 years. ‘Fata Morgana’ (meaning a mirage) makes the point well. Some things are forever new.
