Scabiosa anthemifolia

Scabiosa anthemifolia

DROUGHT and HEAT tolerant and super bloomiferous, with loads of pretty blue flowers from Spring thru Fall? Whaa? One of my favesfor long season color in well-drained,low water gardens.Deadhead and you get endless 2" "pincushion" blooms on stiff, upright stems – great for cutting and butterflies. Added bonus: Very attractive soft green lobed foliage makes a pretty mound to 3' across. Cut back to 3" in late Fall and side-dress with 1" compost in Spring. Deer resistant!
