Scabiosa Butterfly Blue
Blue Pin Cushions All Season
Scabiosa Butterfly Blue (SCABIOSA Butterfly Blue) is a great old-fashioned garden favorite that works remarkably well in the modern garden. They are perfect for edging your borders and should be a staple in your cutting garden.
Scabiosa is also known as pincushion flower due to the cute little white “pins” that stick out of the showy Dutch blue flower petals. These flowers demand close-up attention since they are so intriguing. Plant them where you and your garden guests can view them up close.
They look amazing with gold colored flowers like Stella de Oro daylilies, Coronation Gold Yarrow or Moon Beam Coreopsis.
This full-sun lover should be watered regularly throughout the warmer months to increase its overall performance. Deadheading after the first bloom will encourage repeat bloom time. ‘Butterfly Blue’ is great for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds and does excellent in rock gardens. Scabiosa Butterfly Blue produces bountiful 2” flowers that attract pollinators all summer. They are insect and disease resistant and bloom from May to frost.
Your garden and your vases will be happy with the bounty that Scabiosa Butterfly Blue brings to them. Make sure to order yours soon!
