Compact form of the popular pincushion flower. Pale blue flowers produced in profusion on wiry stems. Hummocks of grey-green foliage remain tight and tidy making this a useful plant for smaller gardens or containers. Needs a well-drained soil where it will act as a magnet for bees and butterflies. Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back in autumn to maintain tidy habit and form. It is worth keeping in mind that these plants are biennial or short lived perennials.
