Cephalaria gigantea

Giant Scabious

Pale, primrose yellow pin-cushion flowers are extremely long lasting on tall, sturdy stems, lending an airy feel to the back of a herbaceous border.

This relative of our native Scabious is a delightful, cottage garden perennial forming stout clumps of deeply divided, dark green leaves. Its long, branching stems give it a delicate, informal feel, perfect for a 'wild' garden or amongst grasses in a prairie planting scheme or simply as a contrast to more solid, blocky plants such as clipped yew.

Flowers early summer.

May require some staking. Prefers full sun.

Fully hardy.
