The pretty, lilac blue pincushion flowers grow to around 3cm across and are perfect for cottage gardens. The blooms open on tall, airy stems from spring and last well into autumn – longer in warmer climes. There are plenty for the garden as well as for picking.

Scabiosa ‘Butterfly Blue’ will grow to form a nice mound of soft, mid green leaves. They look great planted at the front of a garden bed, along a pathway, in a rock garden or a pot. They are very attractive to beneficial insects such as butterflies and bees.

Plant in a sunny garden spot with moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Water to establish then only if rainfall is low, they are dry tolerant. Remove spent flowers regularly during growth to keep plants tidy and prolong the flowering season.
