This delicious new Scabious has been named 'Blackberry Scoop' as each large, dark berry-purple flower head looks like a mouth-watering scoop of fruity berry ice cream.
Perfect for any 'cottage garden' border or patio container, these beautiful new Scabious not only look good, but are also a magnet for bees and especially butterflies as they waft gently in the breeze.
You'll get wave after wave of exquisite pincushion blooms from June to September every year and not only are they ideal for filling borders with or for planting in mixed pots on the patio.
Bred from the cottage garden favourite, 'Scoop' is a favourite of the cut flower industry, as they flower profusely, and their tall strong stems reach almost 60cm (2ft) making them perfect for cutting - pick posy after posy for your home as your plants come back bigger and better every year!
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pots that are ready to plant directly into final location on receipt. Blackberry Scoop is a half-hardy perennial, withstanding temperatures down to just above 0C, so will need winter protection - for best results, we recommend growing them in pots.
