Unapologetically showy, the blooms on the Scabiosa Butterfly Blue are often likened to a pincushion due to their shape - and they certainly make for a beautiful display wherever planted. Not only a fantastic way to inject some colour into urban, courtyard, cottage and traditional gardens alike, but they also produce wonderful cut flowers, too.
The flowers on the Scabiosa Butterfly Blue are pollen-rich, making them attractive to pollinators like bees and butterflies.
This plant will flower between July and September. It is very easy to care for and has little care needs - simply grow in moist but well-drained soil, and position in full sun. Et voila!
