Pincushion flower or scabiosa gets its name from the beautiful pincushion-like flowers that cover the plant all summer long. Growing tall, pincushion flower is one of the best plants you can grow if you want to attract butterflies to your garden.
Scabiosa are easy to care for and require little maintenance. Rainfall is normally all the water they need however they will require supplementary water during prolonged dry periods. They require no fertiliser, as the addition of compost will suffice.
