Butterfly Blue Scabiosa

Description
Compact and neat, this clumping perennial is perfect for providing color and interest to the front of a seasonal border or mixed garden bed. Decorative containers, too, can be enhanced by the addition of scabiosa's pincushion-shaped blooms. Very easy to grow and maintain, Butterfly Blue prefers a full sun spot in which to thrive. Showy 2½" flowers of soft lavender-blue appear all summer long above 12" tall mounds of rosette-type foliage. They lure beneficial pollinators, such as butterflies, to the garden throughout the entire growing season. Very hardy and long lasting. Deer resistant and drought tolerant. Grows to 12" wide. Ships in 2" pot. Scabiosa columbaria

  • Unique CharactersticsThis pincushion flower cultivar is a compact, clump-forming perennial which typically grows only 12-15" tall. Long and profuse bloom from late April until frost. Blooms almost all year in mild winter climates. Flowers (2" diameter) feature an outer ring of frilly, flat, lavender-blue petals and a paler domed center cushion with protruding stamens (resembling pins in a pincushion). Flowers bloom singly on stiff stems. Finely cut, grayish-green basal leaves. Dwarfing habit and lengthy bloom period make these excellent plants for grouping or massing in border fronts and rock gardens. Can be used as edging. Attractive when combined with the pink-flowered companion plant Scabiosa 'Pink Mist'.
