Butterfly IconDeer Resistant IconRock Garden Icon

Plant Type: Perennials

Pincushion-like, pink flowers with a hint of lavender are borne atop wiry stems over a long period beginning in early summer. They hover over the short mound of ferny basal foliage. This is a reliable, long-blooming selection.

 


Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Scabiosa grows best in average soil and full sun. Good drainage is essential for the health of the plants. Deadheading will promote a longer blooming period. In the fall, cut back any flowering stems to help the plants prepare for winter.
