Scabiosa Butterfly Blue

Height: 12-15″
Width: 12-15″
Spacing: 10″

Scabiosa Butterfly Blue is a compact, clump-forming perennial which typically grows only 12-15″ tall. It is characterized by a long and profuse bloom from late April until frost. Blooms almost all year in mild winter climates. Flowers (2″ diameter) feature an outer ring of frilly, flat, lavender-blue petals and a paler domed center cushion with protruding stamens (resembling pins in a pincushion). Flowers bloom singly on stiff stems. Finely cut, grayish-green basal leaves.

Dwarfing habit and lengthy bloom period make these excellent plants for grouping or massing in border fronts and rock gardens. Can be used as edging. Attractive when combined with the pink-flowered companion plant Scabiosa Pink Mist.
