The Q&A Archives: How Long Do They Live?

Question: I was wondering if you could tell me how long Scabiosa "Pink Mist", "Butterfly Blue", "Fama" and "alba" will live in the ground. I would also like to know how long Columbine will flower.

Answer: Scabiosa is a perennial and should live for three years or longer if it is happy where you have planted it. Columbine flowers for a few weeks, the blooming lasts longer if the season stays cool.
