Description
The Scabiosas may have a rather ugly name, but wow, what beautiful flowers! (Butterflies will love them as much as you do.) And once this one gets going, it gives you true blue flowers week after week. They're great in the garden, and also one of the best perennial flowers for cutting--they have long, clean stems that display each flower beautifully in a vase. Sometimes this perennial is called Pincushion Flower.

      Comments about American Meadows Scabiosa columbaria Butterfly Blue - Plant:

      This flower did not dissapoint! It bloomed throughout the summer non-stop and I could still see flowers on it when winter started! The one con is that it does not look blue, but more of a purple, but it was beautiful nonetheless. It also makes a great cut flower so you can bring the beauty indoors. It you get this flower you will not be disappointed!
