Cultivar Notes - 'Butterfly Blue'
This selection produces a profusion of lavender-blue, pincushion-like flowers over a very long period beginning in late spring. They sit atop wirey stems which hover over the short mound of ferny basal foliage.
Genus Notes - Scabiosa
These varieties of Scabiosa are rugged front of the border plants with lace flowers known for attracting butterflies and a very long bloom time that lasts until frost.

Scabiosas bear multitudes of showy, disc-shaped flowers over a long period (if the spent flowers are removed). Plants require well-drained soil with a pH close to neutral.
