Scabiosa incisa 'Kudo'
- Position: full sun
- Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June to September
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Produced freely from spring to autumn, the larger than average flowerheads create a real impact in a sunny border. Keep cutting them for the vase to encourage more to form (they look great in more naturalised arrangements), but keep plenty for the bees and butterflies - its a firm favourite of theirs.
- Garden care: Protect young plants from slug damage using environmentally friendly slug pellets or beer traps. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and cut back the faded flower stems in autumn.
