More Details

We’ve done the pink version of this petite scabious for ages, so last year, trialled the mauvey-blue and it’s just as good, flowering (HONESTLY) from April until November. These are truly remarkable plants, not as showy as the huge scabious saucers we know and love, but flowering for three times as long. Place them right at the front of a border or in an ever-flowering pot for the doorstep.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Plant in moist but well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered spot. Sprinkle mycorrhizal fungi (Rootgrow) into the base of the planting hole and water well after planting. For best effect plant in groups of 3 or more.
Care Tips Deadhead to prolong flowering. Make sure soil is well drained as Scabious dislike cold, wet winters. A top dressing of grit in October will help improve surface drainage. Divide, replant and fertilise each spring. This will need staking in non-sheltered gardens.
