A very pretty hardy perennial. My wintersown ones bloomed the second year from seed. They are tall flowers on very thin stems and tend to flop. Mine is planted at the back of the bed, but probably would be better in the middle of the bed so that surrounding plants would support the floppy stems. After most flowers have faded, the plant benefits from shearing back. They will soon rebloom heavily as shorter flowers. Very pretty in bouquets.

Knautia macedonica was named after the German doctor, Christoph Knaut, who lived from 1638 to 1694.
