Butterfly Blue™ is a heavy-blooming dwarf with blue flowers, smaller than those of S. caucasica, that are produced in amazing abundance. They provide rich blue bloom all summer long and may be cut when half open. The form is neat and compact, the shade excellent, but the masses of flowers are beyond belief.
This is the most distinguished genus in the Teasel family, and it includes a number of useful perennials for the garden. Scabious are of easy culture in full sun (or partial shade in the South) and well-drained soil.
