Full of nectar and vibrant in colour you will have your own butterfly ball in your garden all summer long. With regular dead heading your plants will continue flowering well into the autumn. Latest breeding means these tissue culture plants flower colours will not vary and their compact yet spreading habit makes excellent ground cover which is most unusual for a Scabious. Prefer sun or part shade in well-drained soil. Height 50cm (20”). Spread 40cm (16”). Hardy perennial.
