2000 Perennial Plant of the Year

The Perennial Plant Association chose Scabiosa columbaria 'Butterfly Blue' as Perennial Plant of the year in 2000. It deserves the award a thousand times over as its ornamental qualities are really exceptional.

  • Continuous flowering from late spring until... December, (*)
  • Free flowering lavender blue blooms,
  • a healthy, compact habit which makes this scabious a choice selection to flower a border or to grow in pots. Height of the foliage: 30 cm max.

Although it appreciates partial shade in hot climates, we prefer to grow it in the sun in ordinary, pH neutral or slightly chalky, light, well-drained soil. Avoid growing it in heavy, damp soil.

Accompanying plants: with silver (Artemisia) and bluish (Festuca - Agropyron) foliage; in a duo with Scabiosa 'Pink Mist'; in a trio with Coreopsis verticiliita 'Moonbeam' and Pennissetum'Hameln'.
