Plant Information

Cephalaria gigantea is an attractive clump forming perennial which produces a large rosette of lush green foliage and through the summer tall spikes up to 2m in height bearing masses of yellow flowers 5cm+ across, will set seed freely.

Cephalaia gigantea is a true 'Alice in Wonderland' plant with its huge statue like flower spikes, as a plant for the front of a border or as a stand alone variety it really earns its place in your garden flowering all Summer. Don't let the height of this variety put you off, it takes up a limited amount of bed space and can be used to good effect in smaller spaces.
