    Growing Knautia Macedonica

    This easy-care perennial thrives in sunny sites with well-draining soil, though it can tolerate some light shade too. It is generally pest and disease resistant, but may require some deadheading to prolong the flowering season. A great addition to any garden, Knautia Macedonica Melton Pastels will bring a burst of colour and beauty to your outdoor space.

    For best results for your Knautia Macedonica Melton Pastels, plant in groups or borders for maximum effect. To keep the plants looking their best long-term, it is recommended that they are pruned back down to ground level each spring as new growth begins. This allows more room for the new shoots to grow, helping keep the plants neat and compact. Additionally, removal of spent flowers throughout summer helps encourage reblooming and ensures that there is always an abundance of colourful blooms on display.
