Introducing our Scabiosa columbaria Butterfly Blue Perennial Plug Plant, an exquisite addition to any garden. This fully hardy perennial thrives in full sun and moderately fertile, well-drained soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. With an average rate of growth, this scabious showcases its beauty through its stunning lavender blue, pincushion-like flowers blooming from July to September.


Delicate stems gracefully support these charming flowers, which emerge above clumps of lance-shaped, grey-green leaves. Whether showcased in a rock garden or as part of a container arrangement, this long-flowering blue scabious adds a touch of elegance to any landscape. The name speaks for itself - its irresistible flowers beckon butterflies, making it an excellent choice for those seeking to attract these vibrant creatures to their garden. Moreover, these pincushion blooms also lend themselves beautifully to both fresh and dried flower arrangements.


When cultivating this plant, it is advisable to protect young plants from slug damage, which can be done using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Regular deadheading is recommended to prolong the flowering period, and in autumn, it is advised to cut back the faded flower stems.
