Undergoing MyBlogLog Verification

Thursday, September 18, 2008


Propagating Knautia is done by digging up the well rooted rhizomes that spread out from the parent plant in the spring. It can be invasive in some gardens, it prefers sunny chalky well draining soil, avoid wet feet, and it is a loosely branching perennial that has a tendency to roam. Knautia blooms are red, flowers in June through August, honeybees and butterflies enjoy the nectar. It is deciduous, deer enjoy munching, and reaches a height of 24".
