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.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
