Description:

Grew this from seed 20 years ago,was always know as a Scabious,but is not a true Scabious.This plant grows up to 9ft without support and insects love it,plus very hardy.There is one that only grows 4-5ft too.It is covered in ladybirds at the moment.

Cephalaria gigantea

Love it! Such a nice colour.We grow Knautia macedonica, which we like, but Cepahalaria is superb.

More than welcome

Seed's can be sent if you like,as i have never seen it in a garden centre before.I bought the seeds from a company called Chiltern seeds who specialised in unusual plants.Yes it is a very delicate yellow.
