Devil's Bit Scabious Plug Plants Succisa pratensis
Common names include sheep's bit.
A small native perennial with pincushion lilac blue flowers, devil's bit scabious is a common wildflower of marshes, damp meadows and woodlands.
Plant in your wildflower meadow, wildlife garden or woodland setting, to enjoy the pretty flowers from July to October.
One of the RHS Plants for Pollinators, devil's bit scabious is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects and is a food plant for the marsh fritillary butterfly.
Sourced from native seed and grown for us in the UK, our plug plants are an ideal way to boost species in a wildflower meadow or to easily establish plants in your garden or in areas where seed germination can be erratic.
We recommend planting 5 plugs per metre square in groups of at least 3 per species for a naturalistic look.
