We were not prepared for the depth of blue of the flowers of Scabiosa caucasica 'Fama Deep Blue.' Rising above the grayish green basal foliage, the extra large flowers are the real attraction of this vibrant perennial. The solitary flowers, three to four inches in width, consist of an interior pincusion of florets surrounded by a showy ruff of outer florets. The flowers will continue into the autumn if deadheaded on a regular basis. Use them for cut-flower arrangements or simply enjoy their beauty in the mixed border.

Summer to fall.  2 ft. x 2 ft.
