Product information "Centaurea macrocephala"

Giant knapweed has an imposing and impressive appearance in any planting. It can grow up to 120 cm tall and has broad, dense, bushy growth. Numerous, up to 5 cm large, yellow flowers that are similar to the artichoke appear above the lanceolate, partly pinnate leaves in July and August. Centaurea macrocephala prefers locations in full sunny with well-drained, dry, not too fertile soil. Constantly moist locations should be avoided. It is suitable for all kinds of flower beds, but also in natural plantings it is a real eye-catcher. Its flowers are also extremely suitable as a cut flower in bouquets.
