Scabiosa 'Blue Butterfly'


Scabiosa 'Blue Butterfly' (Scabiosa)

What an amazing plant! Genuinely photographed today, after all the frost we've had. There are still buds to open, as well.

It has a long flowering period, Micky - and we haven't had any snow here. I was surprised to find several flowers in bloom today!

Nice to know that even the flowers can beat the snow but sorry to hear that you haven't had any. I'm sending a couple of truck loads by DHL. Hope you enjoy it.

Wouldn't know where mine was if I had one - still deep and crisp and even - well getting a bit slushy now, thank goodness.

No - I don't cut any flowers except sweetpeas, Sbg. I love to see them in the garden! Yes, Amy - a real treat.

No snow at all here - hard frosts, though - and this afternoon - RAIN!!

Doon - there's another Scabious plant in the front garden - it has a couple of buds and one is bravely trying to open its petals in spite of the frost!

Isn't Nature wonderful? :-)))
