As human beings, we have been fascinated with geometrical shapes since the first record of our existence. We all admired the beautiful structures of snow crystals as a child and marvelled at the remarkably symmetrical honeycomb of the bee, each little cell a perfect hexagon. Many of these geometric forms look too perfect, to be real, and while some mathematicians and scientists may talk about mathematics as the 'mysterious code that underpins the world', most gardeners are familiar with the perfect geometry that is to be found in nature.
The papery bracts of Scabiosa stellata is an example of perfect geometry and adds a new shape to the garden. This most unusual plant produces delicate pale blue spherical flower heads, but is grown primarily for the seed heads which follow. A tender perennial often used as an annual is also known as paper moons, or star-flowers, the everlasting seed heads make excellent cut flowers and are perfect for dried arrangements. They are striking in a bridal bouquet or as a cluster alone in a vase.
