Description
Echinops ritro is a well loved perennial with a strong architectural impact. Spiky globes of electric blue flowers perch upon silvery green stems, which make superb cut flowers, whether fresh or dried. The late summer blooms rise above clumps of spiny, deeply cut foliage which forms an attractive contrast with other perennials. Awarded and RHS AGM for its garden performance, this Globe Thistle works well in sunny cottage garden borders and hot gravel gardens. Pollinating insects love it too, so plant a few in your wildlife areas for the local bees. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Echinops plants thrive on poor, well drained soils, but will grow in most soils and situations. Choose a position in full sun or semi shade.
More Info
Feed and water regularly until are fully established. Globe Thistles seed freely and the ornamental seed heads provide further late summer interest if left intact. If seedlings are not required, simply deadhead the faded flowers.
