(Cephalaria gigantea) Native to moist meadows and mountain pastures from the Caucasus to Siberia, this scabiosa relative is a botanical marvel. Towering plants (over 8’!) with long wiry stems and pale yellow/chartreuse pincushion type blooms sway in the breeze and attract bumblebees in droves. Beautiful unique color as a cut with spectacularly long stems to 36”. Wonderful as a tall and lively border or for filling a corner of the garden. It's mildly shocking that this is not more widely available as seed here in the US. It was one of our best discoveries of the past years. Rare.
Perennial. Blooms the second year and thereafter. UO
