Description

Height x Spread: 100cm x 60cm

Each upright stem that protrudes from the linear green basal leaves, bears a scabious-like flower head with a colour ranging from magenta to lilac during summer. Macedonian scabious has a bushy habit.

South facing borders suit this Macedonian scabious as they flourish in the full sun providing they are planted in any reasonable soil. Cut back stems after flowering. 'Melton Pastels' works amazingly well in coastal locations, borders and beds, and wildlife situations.
