DescriptionThis variety has now sold out. You may like Scabiosa caucasica 'Fama Deep Blue' instead.
A classic British garden plant, invaluable for its hugely long-flowering season and good vase life. Pollinators love them.
Plant in moist but well-drained soil in a sunny, sheltered spot. Deadhead to prolong flowering. This will need staking in non-sheltered garden
