Scabiosa 'Butterfly Blue'
Pincushion Flower - 2 litres
Scabiosa (Scabious) 'Butterfly Blue' is one of the most prolific flowering of all garden perennials, with an endless succession of lavender-blue pincushion flowers, which are irresistible to butterflies and bees, from June through September. Delightful and long lasting as cut flowers. A low, spreading plant with neat, greyish foliage, invaluable for the front of a border, especially effective in groups.
Thrives in well drained, neutral to alkaline soil, in sun. Deadheading prolongs flowering. Lift and divide in spring every 3 years to maintain vigor.
