Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

The relaxed habit of this lovely perennial makes it a perfect candidate for a wild, informal border where it will flower from summer to autumn, attracting pollinating insects with its nectar rich flowers. A basal clump of softly hairy leaves gives rise to tall, slender stems bearing masses of deep red, pincushion flowers. Beautiful placed in the middle of the border weaving through ornamental grasses. Good cut flower. Height 80cm (32”). 75cm (30”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Grow Knautia in borders in full sun. Field scabious prefers a well-drained, alkaline or neutral soil and is particularly suitable for chalky garden soils.
Water Knautia plants regularly until fully established. Deadhead faded field scabious flowers to prolong blooming. In autumn, cut back old stems to just above ground level to make way for new growth in the spring.
