Small scabious (Scabiosa columbaria
) is the wild French form of the plant from which the well-known 'Butterfly Blue' and 'Pink Mist' selections were made. This delicately beautiful perennial flowers with pompoms of delicate blue-violet on 12" stems for most of the summer. Irresistable to butterflies and beneficial insects.
Plant in full sun in light, well-drained soil from spring through late summer. Hardy through Zone 5 with adequate drainage.
I've searched for a year to find the right source of French native wildflower seeds to offer you. Here they are! Certified organically grown, these seeds are produced on a family flower farm in the Massif Central
. One hundred percent of the process is artisanal, right down to the seed packets which are decorated with drawings of the content plants by the owner.
