Knautia Plants (Scabious)

Knautia plants are stunning perennials that can add eye-catching color and texture to any sunny garden. The blooms have a semi spherical dome full of petals. The foliage is mid green and divided into oval serrated leaves.

They come from family Caprifoliaceae. The common names are variants of “widow flower”, and can be called Scabious, the pincushion flower.

There are many reasons to grow Knautia in your garden or landscaping. Not only do they provide bright visual appeal, but the flowers also attract butterflies and other pollinators. These hardy plants are low maintenance and drought tolerant, making them easy to care for. They thrive in full sun, however will tolerate some light shade if needed.

To ensure successful growth of your Knautias, it’s important to provide them with the right care. Water regularly until established and then reduce waterings; however, it’s important to not let the plant dry out completely. Deadheading spent blooms will promote new growth. If needed, trim back stems after flowering to maintain a healthy shape. Additionally, adding compost or mulch in early spring can help give your plants a nutrient boost. With minimal maintenance, Knautia will reward you with beautiful flowers for years to come!

By following these simple guidelines for care, you can enjoy lush gardens full of vibrant and eye-catching blooms season after season.
