scabiosa availability

I'm wondering if anyone can give me an idea of how difficult it is to find Scabiosa in a nursery. I think I'm going to try the varity that works well in part shade and I'd rather buy it in person. I just can't remember if I've seen it before or not. I know every nursery is different, but are these fairly normal plants? I have a few medium size nurseries around me as well as a Home Depot. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

RE: scabiosa availability

Hi Deborah, That's a pretty generic question. Tough to answer directly. My experience is that the local garden centers around where I live all carry it, but I imagine it may depend on individual areas and nurseries. I can't really speak of HD for it specifically. I generally see the pink or light blue form, but hardly ever see white or yellow in the local nurseries. I have a light blue one in light shade and it does well for me, I bought it locally. Can you ask at the nurseries if they plan to carry it, then if not, maybe mail order it if you have to? I've been looking for a white one and haven't found one yet. I am still looking myself. Good Luck, I don't know if it helped at all, but it was nice saying hello... JoAnn
