Scabiosa columbaria ‘Blue Note’

Dwarf Pincushion Flower

USDA Zone: 4-8

Plant number: 1.480.200

A welcome addition to the colour range of Dwarf Pincushion Flower selections. This forms a low mound of lacy grey-green leaves, bearing a very long display of small button-shaped flowers in a soft lavender-blue shade. Ideal for along the front of a sunny border, in mixed containers, the rock garden or even growing on walls. Deadhead occasionally in summer to tidy up the plants. Needs very good drainage in winter. A recent introduction from Kieft Seeds of the Netherlands.
