Got: Scabiosa caucasia perfecta is a well-known, reliable, large-flowered blue-mauve form. Scabious are classic British garden plants and are invaluable for their hugely long flowering season, good vase life and the bonus that the bees and butterflies love them.
Greater Knapweed - Centaurea scabies is big and showy, like a cross between a cornflower and a thistle, with whiskery petals in a whorl. It is a valuable nectar source for insects and a favourite flower of butterflies, including the Marbled White and Dark Green Fritillary. It also has therapeutic properties, and was once used in skin ointments to heal wounds and infections. Centaurea scabiosa is a truly outstanding wild flower which outshines many cultivated plants.
