'Butterfly Blue' is a sterile hybrid, so it will not self-seed, but it can be propagated by division or by taking basal cuttings. It is a hardy plant that is tolerant of drought and poor soil conditions, but it will grow best in moist, well-drained soil and full sun.

Scabiosa Columbaria 'Butterfly Blue' is a great choice for borders, beds, and rock gardens. It can also be used in containers. To encourage reblooming, deadhead spent flowers regularly. Cut back the entire plant in the fall to help it prepare for winter.

Here are some tips for growing Scabiosa Columbaria 'Butterfly Blue':

  • Plant in full sun or partial shade.
  • Choose a well-drained soil.
  • Water regularly, especially during the first growing season.
  • Fertilize in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Deadhead spent flowers to encourage reblooming.
  • Cut back the entire plant in the fall.

Scabiosa Columbaria 'Butterfly Blue' is a beautiful and versatile plant that is a great addition to any garden.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
