Generally native to Asia and Europe, delicate pincushion flowers (Scabiosa) are available in creamy white and lavender-blue colors. They are abundant with nectar, thus inviting honey bees, butterflies, and many other moths. USDA zones 3 - 9 are ideal for growing pincushion flowers. Required growing conditions are full sunlight, average rich soil, and regular watering.
If there's one flower that can be termed as an exquisite beauty, it is the orchid. This flower looks as good in a bouquet, as it does in a bride's hairdo, and even on its creeper!
Once you found the stems like that, cut just above a node (the place on the stem where leaves emerge) and cut at an angle. Place them immediately in water before you proceed to the next step. If you score up the bark on both sides of the cane (approximately for one inch) it will produce roots even easier. Place the planting medium in small containers - 4 inch container will be most suited - then, if you want to use root hormone, moist the end of the cutting in water and then stick it in the rooting hormone powder. Once you remove the excess with a little shake, make a hole in the soil with a pencil and place your cutting (if your cane has two nodes, place one under the soil, if it has three, you can place two nodes under the growth medium), gently firming the soil around the plant with finger pressure.
These colorful flowers, when planted in beds, have the tendency to attract butterflies and small birds, which will further enhance the beauty of your garden.
