This pincushion flower cultivar is a compact, clump-forming perennial which typically grows only 12-15″ tall. Long and profuse bloom from late April until frost. Flowers [2″ diameter] feature an outer ring of frilly, flat, lavender-blue petals and a paler domed center cushion with protruding stamens [resembling pins in a pincushion]. Flowers bloom singly on stiff stems.
