Scabiosa columbaria Pink Mist is a charming perennial with pincushion tufts of flowers held on impossibly slender stems. Gorgeous in floral arrangements, both fresh and dried, the butterflies lalso love these flowers.
This is a dwarf variety of scabious, blooming continually from summer to late autumn. The lance-like leaves form a low, compact mound. Excellent in containers or at the front of a border, it also works well in cottage garden schemes, or mixed with grasses in a prairie-style garden.
