Compact and neat, this clumping perennial is perfect for providing color and interest to the front of a seasonal border or mixed garden bed. Decorative containers, too, can be enhanced by the addition of scabiosa's pincushion-shaped blooms. Very easy to grow and maintain, Butterfly Blue prefers a full sun spot in which to thrive. Showy 2½" flowers of soft lavender-blue appear all summer long above 12" tall mounds of rosette-type foliage. They lure beneficial pollinators, such as butterflies, to the garden throughout the entire growing season. Very hardy and long lasting. Deer resistant and drought tolerant. Scabiosa columbaria 'Butterfly Blue'
