Product Overview

Excellent front of the border plant to use in combination with annuals, bulbs, and other perennial. Gray-green, mounding, 12 in. tall and wide, hairy, basal foliage that hugs the ground while lacy, lavender-blue, 2 in. wide flowers rise above on 12-15 in. slender stems. Flowering begins in mid-spring with intermittent reblooming until fall, when consistently deadheaded. it's name 'Pincushion Flower' is derived from the stamens which stand above the petals, resembling pins stuck in a pincushion. Plant in full sun to light shade in organically rich, moist, well drained soil. Do not cut back in fall; winter damage should be removed in spring. Excellent choice for container planting, for front of the perennial border, or in the cut flower garden.
