Description Fine Print
 
Knautia 'Thunder and Lightning' has fully double, deep magenta, pincushion flowers that float above light green leaves edged in creamy white for months on end. The unique, variegated foliage has a sturdy, compact and bushy form on plants that are half the height (or less) of the species. Blooms from early summer to autumn. A dramatic addition to beds, borders and cutting gardens. Large enough for maximum impact in the garden, it is compact enough to be showy in containers. Drought tolerant and deer resistant. A good nectar source for beneficial insects.
