Knautia General Information:

Knautias are upright, clump-forming perennials. Avoid too moist (wet feet). This is an excellent choice for the front of the border. Compact size also makes it great for containers.

Knautia Plant Care:

Can be divided every 3-4 years in spring. Avoid soil that is compacted or wet in winter. To ensure a supply of flowers, prune oldest stems to the ground to make room for the newer ones. Leave some spent blossoms, birds love the seeds.
