Scabiosa columbaria 'Mariposa Blue'
Zoom In Photo:

Fully double, large, lavender blue blossoms on sturdy stems rise above tidy bluish-green foliage. With a compact, tidy habit, this is a long and profuse bloomer. The Phoenicians were mightily impressed with this cultivar in our trials. Use it in containers or at the front of the border.
