Pincushion Plant

Knautia

Knautia macedonica ‘Mars Midget’ full sun

The deep crimson of this exciting new cultivar’s double 2 inch pincushion blooms is rare and intense. Shorter and more compact than the species, sturdy ‘Mars Midget’ furnishes curving stems, which branch into several flowering stalks and hold a seemingly endless supply of the extraordinary color above green basal leaves.

Lively on its own, it’s absolutely vibrant with Salvia ‘Amethyst’, Geranium ‘Nimbus’ and Kniphofia ‘Orange Flame’.

Blooms June–October.

Size: 16" high x 20" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.
