More Information

Description ‘Butterfly Blue’ pincushion flower (Scabiosa columbaria) is a rather small plant, but it makes a big impact in the garden with its insanely long bloom time. Starting in April its unique, frilly rounded flowers start popping up in masses and continue to feed pollinators well into frost. Its petite habit allows it to be tucked easily into mixed beds, containers, or cut flower gardens where it will be rather low maintenance after it has established. If you enjoy spending time in your garden, this selection responds well to deadheading and will reward you with more prolific reblooming. Details Botanical name: Scabiosa columbaria 'Butterfly Blue'
Common name: Pincushion flower
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 12-18" x 12-18"
Flower color: Blue
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Late spring into fall
Uses: Accent, border, containers, cottage gardening, edging, ground cover, massing, Small spaces, cut flower gardens, pollinator gardens.
How To Grow Soil: Thrives in average soils, but cannot tolerate heavy soils with poor drainage.
Light: Full sun is best for most prolific blooming
Water: Needs medium to dry moisture, will not tolerate too much moisture or soggy conditions.
Spacing: 1.5 feet apart
Fertilizing: Does not need fertilizer, grows well in poor soils. If desired a light application can be applied every other spring.
Winterizing: Foliage can be left standing through fall and winter. Do not apply mulch on crown. It will not tolerate soggy winter conditions.
Maintenance & Pruning: Clean up old foliage in spring before new growth appears. Consider deadheading after flowering.

My pincushion plant did very well. It's November and we have already had a few nights in the 20s here in zone 7a. This thing is still blooming! I'm going to purchase more of these when they come back in stock.

I ordered two of these. One was super healthy and is going great with nice blooms.
The other was sickly and hasn’t grown at all, I don’t expect it to survive the winter.
