Knautia macedonica ‘Melton Pastels’

A cottage garden favourite that also suits more naturalistic planting schemes. Knautia macedonica ‘Melton Pastels’ has scabious like flowers in a range of pastel shades from pale pinks and lilacs to deep wine reds. Height 60-80cm. It does seed about in our garden once established and we do have to edit it down a bit as they are rather too generous – but this is such a beautiful plant that comes into its own in late May – June and then flowers more sporadically throughout the Summer. The seed heads are a much loved by Goldfinches.
