Globe Thistle

Globe Thistle

Echinops ritro

The grayish, thistle-like foliage of Echinops is a great architectural and contrasting element in the garden. The flowers are unusual spiny globes that last for weeks (and can also be dried). Does well in poor dry soil and reseeds. After flowers fade, cut back to basal growth for rebloom.  Soft steel-blue flowers appear between July and September.

Plant Height: 2-3 feet
