Scabious 'Vivid Violet' (Large Plant)


Hardy Perennial

A relatively low growing variety with mauve-purple pincushion flowers carried above finely cut foliage. Scabious 'Vivid Violet' is more mildew resistant than many cultivars, and particularly free flowering from July to September. Like all Scabious, the blooms are a magnet for bees and butterflies and make useful cut flowers too. Its low, mounding habit makes this hardy perennial a welcome addition to rockeries and the front of sunny borders. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 45cm (18").
