The most stunningly beautiful globe thistle. Statuesque and silvery blue, bees and butterflies flock to it….despite its spikes!
Magical in the garden or in a vase….it also makes a wonderful dried flower.
Echinops is a perennial….you may get a few flowers during the first year or you may have to wait until the following year when they will really get going and also self seed like mad!
