Description

Field Scabious Plug Plants Knautia arvensis

Common names include gypsy rose and blue button.

A pretty perennial native wildflower species which produces an abundance of blue to blue-violet pin cushion flowers from June through to September.

Field scabious will grow in most conditions if well drained, but will do better in alkaline soils.  It prefers full sun and looks beautiful in a garden border.

Ideal for a wildlife garden, this meadow species is a favourite with bees and butterflies and also provides food for seed-eating birds like finches.

Our strong, healthy plants are grown in 40cc cell trays and are ready to be planted in their final position.

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.
