Cephalaria gigantea | Giant Scabious

Regular price$15.00
Tax included.
perfect for pollinators

Cephalaria gigantea also known as giant yellow scabious is a clump-forming perennial and has big 6cm wide lemon coloured flowers that are as the name suggests, very similar to that of a Scabiosa.  

The basal foliage though is only about 60cm wide and bushy - the word giant really comes from the tall airy stems of flowers as in my garden the clumps of foliage are only about 50-60cm high with the flowers that float above the foliage.

Flowers in Summer with the added bonus of being an excellent cut flower lasting well in a vase. Happy in a well-drained sunny to a partially shaded position.

Height of flower stems upwards of 1-5m - Clump of lower foliage about 50-50cm high x approximately 60cm Wide.
