A cottage garden favourite, the ever-reliable and low maintenance pincushion flower will perform admirably in any front of border or garden edge position. The flat umbel shaped flowers of scabiosas are the perfect landing pad for bees and beneficial insects, bringing a healthy biodiversity to your garden. Use the long lasting flowers and delicate ferny foliage in a beautiful pastel bouquet, combined with other blue, mauve, white and pink flowers for a charming arrangement.
Dead head regularly to prolong flowering. Drought tolerant once established, water regularly for the first year. Apply Flower and Bulb fertiliser in spring.
