Cephalaria gigantea woody at base?
Hi all, I have grown some giant scabious from seed a year ago and last year they grew very tall but didn't flower. I wanted to know is this plant supposed to have a woody base? It has made me think if I got my seeds mixed up? The base is woody. Is this correct of scabious? The thing is there are buds coming through but they are about 8 inches up the woody part and I read it should be cut to the ground. If I had done that I wouldn't have had any buds surely? Thanks
