will deadheading tall bi annual scabiosia bring on more flowers or do they just have a flush and seed?



Which Scabiosa do you mean? I would have thought that deadheading would keep most flowering longer, although I never bother as I like mine to seed around (Scabiosa columbaria, Knautia arvensis and Centaurea scabiosa). Or do you have Cephalaria gigantea? I don't think any of them are biennials.
