Butterfly Blue Scabiosa

Photo taken June 28, 2011
Although I purchased this plant from Spring Hill Nursery, I prefer the information that Bluestone Perennials provides about this plant. I also like the fact that the latter company sells this plant for a reasonable price. Thus, I am referencing both companies below.

Spring Hill Nursery's Butterfly Blue Scabiosa arrived looking very healthy and the flowers will be blossoming soon. I am looking forward to seeing them.
