Giant scabious, Cephalaria gigantea makes a dramatic, yet informal, statement in the border, bearing stout, upright stems from which pale primrose-yellow scabious flowers attract a wealth of pollinators. Although tall, Cephalaria gigantea isn’t overbearing – its finely cut, aromatic leaves and stems are airy, allowing for growing in a range of planting schemes. It looks good at the back of a big herbaceous border, among large shrubs or trees in a mixed border, or in a light woodland clearing. It’s informal look makes it perfect for a cottage garden.

Height: Up to 250cm
