If anyone is keen on adding more #wildflowers to their garden, this has to be a worthy contender - a stunning flower and #latebloomer. I bought it originally in spring as a plug plant from a uk wildflower specialist 😊#greaterknapweed #pink #wildflower

Very nice. Some wildflowers should be widely used in the gardens as a border plants 😉

So you'll be collecting the seed or is it perennial?

This has to be my new favourite #wildflower - the detail on this flower #bud from #centaurea scabiosa - or Greater Knapweed - is amazing. It was part of my wildflower goodie box I purchased at the beginning of the year.
