Sheeps bit scabious

£3.00£5.70

The Sheep’s bit scabious has bright blue flowers on short stems, as it only grows to around 20-40cm tall. in the wild it is found in coastal areas on well drained grassland and heaths. Therefore in a garden setting it is ideal in a rockery, dry area or well drained lawn, although it does prefer a more acidic soil. It is great for attracting pollinators and the little blue flower heads will last through the summer months. Our plants are in their first year, so we would expect them to flower in 2021.
