Thanks Debra. Planted them up last year and they have done so well. This is my second attempt at these. My first plant did not do well overwinter. 💜 @debs69

I love these too. They seem smaller this year but still so pretty. I wonder why they would not flower for you. 🤔 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr they even look fantastic before the flowers open 😛 each time I tried them they were eaten by something 🤔

Thanks Katy. I got a few photos of the bee as he seemed to be pretty sleepy. I have flowers suddenly doing quite well due to the warm weather. 😊 @gjones

Yes it is a perennial. Not sure why it had this name tag. It was even advertised as this colour. Maybe they got it wrong again. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️😁 @gjones

Just looked it up in the encyclopedia and it shows this exact colour with the butterfly blue. Weird but true. 💜💙💜 @gjones

My butterfly blue is pretty close to this, not as blue as you'd think by the name

Lovely 💜💜 I've started some scabious graminifolia from seed but no germination yet. Hopefully, they will germinate next week. Mine are annuals though.
