Scabiosa colchica

Scabiosa colchica is a rarely offered species of scabious – which is a shame because it is so beautiful. Scabiosa colchica has distinctly silvery grey green foliage and a mass of pale straw yellow flowers in July and August. Loved by pollinating insects. Forms a low mound 50cm in height x30cm spread. Needs a sunny position and reasonable drainage.
