Description

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.

Care Tips

Deadhead to prolong flowering. This will need staking in non-sheltered gardens.
