Description

Small Scabious Plug Plants Scabiosa columbaria 

Common names include dwarf pincushion flower, pigeon's scabious and dove pincushion.

This native perennial wildflower has pretty bluish purple domed flowers on long stems and is a favourite of cottage garden borders and informal wildlife gardens.  It prefers to grow on well-drained soil in full sun and is commonly seen in meadows, pastures and grasslands.

It is an excellent nectar source for bees and other pollinating insects and is one of the RHS Plants for Pollinators.  The seeds of small scabious are a valuable source of food for birds such as 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.
