The Greater knapweed is bigger and blousier than the common knapweed; it is usually pinky-purple and occasionally white. A group of these will look great at the back of a border or in your meadow. It is ideal in poor soil as if the soil is too fertile, it can become too leafy! Therefore for a wildlife garden or a neglected patch, it will be ideal to bring some long lasting Summer colour.
In the wild, it is often found in dry, chalky grassland; however it will grow in a whole range of soil types
Butterflies and moths are especially attracted to knapweeds. The Marbled white butterfly in particular will often seek out purple flowers as a favourite. In addition finches are oftern attracted to the seed heads.
Greater knapweed can also be included in our bees and butterflies plug plant collection
