Although this is probably the best time of year bloom-wise in my garden, I’m only going to share one. Why? Because this plant NEVER stops blooming. Annie’s Annual’s describes the Knautia macedonica as “one of the longest blooming plants.” In my garden it never takes a break. It’s not fussy, keeps going without deadheading and the bees just love it. I’m very happy with its placement next to the chartreuse foilage of the Santolina ‘Lemon Fizz,’ because even on a cloudy morning (and we get many of those here on the coast) it positively glows.
