Scabiosa Ochroleuca is an unusually coloured variety of this hardy perennial, often called Pincushion Flowers, that blooms in a delicate soft yellow. Known for their long flowering nature they often start in mid summer and still have flowers on them well into autumn. They have the added benefit of being drought resistant and will tolerate dry soil where even other perennials would fail. Growing to a height of 50-60cm and with a spread of 40cm they are ideal for a border or pots and containers or your patio. Supplied in a 7cm pot.
