Cephalaria

The most garden-worthy plants of this versatile genus, which includes 65 species of annuals, biennials and perennials, all bearing pincushion flower heads, are valued for their stature and distinctively textured foliage. Amenable and undemanding perennials with a graceful air, our selections work equally well as specimens or as a swath meandering through the landscape.

This magnificent plant has flat Scabiosa-like primrose-yellow flowers supported by wiry, striped stems and a basal clump of dark green, pinnately lobed foliage. An easy, undemanding perennial, Cephalaria gigantea brings a graceful air to any garden and when given room to grow, we guarantee you’ll be impressed.

Blooms June–August.

Size: 6' high x 4' wide; hardy to zone 4.
