Friday Flowers: Scabiosa Pods

Scabiosa pods are incredibly interesting. Sometimes referred to as the pincushion flower, its greenish-brown ball-shaped head is divided up into several smaller sections that almost resemble cupcake liners! They look gorgeous in bouquets and always add an organic feel to an arrangement. Take a look at some of our most favorite bouquets that use scabiosa pods!
