Small scabious is a smaller version of this common perennial, naturally found in our countryside. It makes small leaves of two types: the basal leaves are pinnatifid (they look like those on dandelions), and stem leaves, as if they did not belong there, are extremely narrow and deeply cut (like those on Japanese maples). Both the types are deciduous and mid green.

Blue Note is a dwarf variety of scabious with large, rich lavender blue flowerheads with domed, pincushion-like central florets and larger marginal florets. They appear in profusion on about 10 cm tall, slender, well-branched stems from late spring until early autumn. Deadheading is recommended for continuous flowering. Leaves form a dense mound which looks great in a rockery or among dwarf plants such as witches brooms.

Scabious is a sun-loving perennial which will grow in free-draining, moderately fertile soil of neutral to slightly alkaline pH. It hates winter wet. Divide plants older 3-4 years. Hardy to about -34°C (USDA zone 4).
