The Field Scabious produces pale blue/mauve flowers on long stems between July and September.  It can be found in neutral and alkaline soils on sands and clays as well as limestone.

It has a valuable role as a tall, attractive summer flower of banks, roadside verges and meadows.  Its size enables it to grow well in tall quite fertile grasslands.  It can persist in unmanaged grasslands but more usually requires an autumn and possibly an additional spring cut.

The flowers are an extremely important nectar source for both butterflies and bees.  It is the preferred nectar source for Small Skipper, Essex Skipper and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies.
