Pincushion flowers are one of those perennials that are often overlooked because they aren't as flamboyant as some of the summer blooming annuals, and may not be in full swing by the time gardeners are planting out their summer gardens. 'Harlequin Blue' pincushion flower may remedy this oversight, with more prolific, earlier and taller blooms than some of its predecessors. Lovely light blue to lavender flower heads and feathery, fern-like foliage add wonderful color and texture to container planters, hanging baskets, borders, and any sunny garden spot. 'Harlequin Blue' will continue blooming well into fall, attracting bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, before dying back for the winter. And unlike annuals, once you plant a pincushion flower, it will come back on its own, year after year.
