Scabiosa ‘Butterfly Blue’


Dwarf Pincushion Flower

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.480.100


This British selection is extremely popular here in North America. It forms a low mound of ferny green foliage. Soft lavender-blue pincushion flowers begin to appear in early summer and continue blooming non-stop into late fall. Terrific for mass planting, edging the border, and especially in mixed containers. Removing faded flowers will ensure continued blooming. Attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant once established. Former Perennial Plant of the Year in 2000.
