    You're sure of the scabious I assume? Which letters in the second word are you sure of? 

    Is it alive?

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    There is a Scabiosa graminifolia hich is a fairly low growing one. Might even be a native wild flower. Very similar to Scabiosa columbaria

    Ah, now there is a plant called Patrinia scabiosifolia. That is a different kettle of fish. It is an 18 inches tall yellow flowered border plant. Comes from the Far East.
