JASIONE LAEVIS BLAULICHT
An unusually striking, hardy perennial with exceptionally bright blue spiky flowers, the protruding stamens making the flowers very noticeable, and decorative and bright into late September! The rosettes of narrowly-oblong leaves look like moss mounds, and are evergreen making this plant perfect for open spots without much shade, such as in a rockery or amongst grasses. Although it superficially looks like a scabious, it is no relation, as it is in the bellflower family!
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
Common name:Blue Light, Sheep's Bit Scabious, Sheep’s bit scabious
