Spark your imagination with the fantastic frilly foliage on this variegated Scabiosa! This splendid, lime-edged sport of 'Vivid Violet' delivers the same flower-power and mildew-resistance as the original, but not quite the same hardiness. The foliage makes a great texture as a component in a container and the plant carries blooms all summer!
