Scabiosa 'Pink Mist' PBR
Pincushion Flower - 2 litres
Scabiosa (Scabious) 'Pink Mist' is similar to the well-known 'Butterfly Blue', equally free and long-flowering, with pink 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. Height and spread 40cm.
Thrives in well drained, neutral to alkaline soil, in sun. Deadheading prolongs flowering. Lift and divide in spring every 3 years to maintain vigour.
