SCABIOSA JAPONICA ... buy them at Kerns Nursery in Jewett

An extremely long blooming compact plant producing many cornflower blue flowers throughout the summer.  Often re-seeds and maintains a neat appearance

Many bright blue one-inch flowers rise on wiry 12" stems. Blooms begin a rich lavender-blue and age to violet. Even the seed heads of this gem are attractive. Blooms a long time, from summer to frost.  
Also Scabiosa Japonica Alpina, for rock gardens, a dense, evergreen perennial.
Dark, glossy green, spoon shaped leaves make a dense, weed suppressing, mound forming ground cover. Throughout the warmer months copious quantities of lavender, pincushion-like, flowers are present. An very tough plant tolerant of most conditions.

We hope to see you at one of our events.  Please e-mail us with your questions or suggestions.
