Latin Name: Scabiosa columbaria
Forestart Reference: SMASCA

A rich nectar flower for bees and butterflies. Highly decorative purple/blue pincushion flowers in masses during summer.

A smallish perennial of poor soils including heavily grazed calcareous downland, but will thrive in any soil. Has a deep root system so withstands drought and flowers between June and Oct. A useful ornamental plant for the garden, attracting not just insects but goldfinches for the seeds in autumn. Sow at any time of year, but best results from an autumn sowing.

Seed from Shropshire
