Scabiosa incisa ‘Kudo’ is a compact scabious, bearing larger than average, bright pink pincushion flowers from spring to autumn. It’s a fantastic choice for a mixed herbaceous border, gravel garden or container planting scheme, and it makes a wonderful cut flower. Its blooms are loved by bees, butterflies and hoverflies alike.
Grow Scabiosa incisa ‘Kudo’ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Try it among ornamental grasses or alongside lime-green chrysanthemums. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering and then cut back completely in autumn or leave seedbeds in place for the birds. Plants may need staking.
