Scabious 'Blue Jeans'

Scabiosa atropurpurea, Pincushion Flower

Hardy Perennial

 Customer Rating
An abundance of blue pincushion scabious flowers will attract bees and butterflies throughout summer. The tall, wiry stems can also be cut to create a pretty display indoors. Scabiosa 'Blue Jeans' blends well among cottage garden borders, where they look particularly effective planted in large drifts. Height and spread: 45cm (18").

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, wildlife gardens, cut flower garden
Flowering Period:
June, July, August
full sun
    • 6 scabious plug plants

Pot up plants using free-draining compost, and grow scabious on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting them outdoors. Choose a sunny position on fertile, well drained, neutral to alkaline soil that is not excessively wet in winter.
Water scabious plants until they are fully established. Deadhead faded scabious flowers to encourage more blooms to be produced. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps in spring.
