Scabiosa japonica var. alpina 'Pink Diamonds'
Scabiosa 'Pink Diamonds' is a charming herbaceous to semi-evergreen perennial alpine plant growing to 25cm. It is compact, clump-forming, with dark green leaves and upright stems bearing pink flower heads from early summer into autumn. Perfect in the sunny rock garden, but also useful at the front of the border or in mixed containers. Flowers are attractive to bees and butterflies. Grow in moderately fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Protect from wet, winter conditions. May be evergreen in warmer areas and die back in winter in colder climates.
