Knautia Macedonica

Knautia Macedonica

I obviously have a 'thing' for deep reds/purples. Grown from seed. I'm hoping it will throw itself about a bit through the borders. Must take seed this year. Georgeous colour IMO.

I like this Ange, it's very similar to Knautia. I have a pink one and they have their flowerheads threaded through the other plants, very dainty and pretty..

You're quite right, Janey, it is Knautia! Thanks for putting me right.

I was just going to say I hadn't seen you'd titled It Knautia! Mine tend to grow so very tall. As the flowers fade, they turn to lilac.

Hoping it’ll spread for you, Ange. It looks like it’ll be a nice filler between your other plants.

Thanks, Janey.

Kate, I hope to get more. The butterflies like it (not that I've seen many this Summer, sadly).
