Scabiosa columbaria blue is a hardy, evergreen, soft, clump-forming, herbaceous perennial with attractive, deeply lobed, grey green foliage.
This hybrid, free flowering perennial has large, showy flowers that are carried on slender erect stems all year round.
A lovely plant for mass planting in full sun. Butterflies are irresistibly attracted to its nectar and it is seldom you see a plant in flower without butterflies. Makes a good cut flower and container plant.
The species is used medicinally and the dried parts are ground and used as a perfumed baby powder.
