  6. SCABIOSA INCISA

    With its clusters of creamy white flowers, this must be one of South Africa's prettiest indigenous perennials. Growing in small clumps, the countless flower heads stand on long, naked stems above the finely divided, almost fern-like leaves, which form opposite each other along the lower part of the stems, gently moving with the slightest breeze. On warm summer days, butterflies cover these filigree mounds for this is one of their favourite nectar plants. A long succession of beautiful flowers appears from early spring to the middle of summer. ... Learn More

  8. Scabiosa lucida
    New

    SCABIOSA LUCIDA

    Delicate single clear-lavender flowers dance on slender, wiry stems enjoying the attentions of visiting bees and butterflies in search of their rich supply of nectar from June all the way through to September. The foliage forms a loose clump of deeply serrated leaves, making this an attractive plant for the front of an herbaceous border. Plant in a sunny position in well-drained soil, although it will tolerate some shade if you haven't got quite the right spot in full sun, and dead-head regularly to keep the flowers coming and to control self-seeding. ...

  9. SCABIOSA RUMELICA

    A gorgeous, slowly-spreading plant, producing 'pincushion' flowers on many branching stems over a very, very long flowering season, often into winter!. This rarely seen colour makes a bright splash even in the darkest corner. The dense, double, scabious like flowers are a brilliantly strong crimson-cherry-red, a rare colour in border flowers, and in time it makes a large, neat, rounded bushy plant producing countless flowers which are also excellent for cutting. Although its alternative name is Knautia, (pronounced 'naughtier'), this easy to grow, strikingly beautiful plant, thankfully doesn't live up to its name! Finally, as well as flowering as long and hard as almost any plant in the garden, the bees and butterflies absolutely adore them. ... Learn More
