An explosion of larger, lilac-blue flowers on upright stems. Finely sculpted blossoms twinkle like jewels atop lacy foliage. Its propensity to parade flowers from spring into fall and its compact stature make an ideal ever-flowering variety for a patio container. The common name of Pincushion Flower fits Scabiosa perfectly. Prominent stamens, like pins in a pincushion, rise from the center of the rounded, button-like blooms. Scabiosa Flutter™ Deep Blue is a solid performer that provides big rewards for little work.

Scabiosa General Information

Scabiosa are extremely long-blooming compact, clump-forming perennials with uniquely shaped, eye-catching flowers. Multiple pincushion-shaped flowers produced all season. Shades of purples, blues and pinks. Needs well drained soil. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Scabiosa Plant Care

Prefers average fertile soil with good winter drainage. Can be divided every 3 - 4 years in spring if needed. Cut off dead outer leaves in spring if needed. Remove spent blossoms to extend bloom time. Old flowering stems can be cut back for winter, but leave new growth at base to overwinter.
