'Ochroleuca' is an unusually coloured Scabiosa variety. This hardy perennial, often referred to as Pincushion Flowers, bloom in a delicate soft yellow that contrasts beautifully against the strong green stems at a mature height of 50-60cm. Known for their long flowering nature, they often start in mid-summer from June and flower through to October. These amazing flowers have the added benefit of being able to tolerate drier soil where other perennials would likely fail. A great choice for gardeners looking to invite butterflies and bees into the garden; they will thrive in patio containers, window boxes or when planted along pathways and borders. 7cm pot plants supplied.
