Knautia is a well-known garden plant but not enough utilized; this species forms an upright clump with lobed foliage and deep red, scabiosa-like flower heads throughout the summer months. Outstanding long-flowering perennial!
You can make endless combinations with Knautia in the flower beds; also it can be used for cut flowers, fresh or dry. Good for pollinators but birds will also enjoy the seeds.
Germination: easy, warm germinator; sow in the spring.
