Echinops Veitch's Blue
Common Name: Globe Thistle
Ships As: Perennial Bareroot #1 Grade
A clumping perennial that is very easy to grow but not invasive. Beginning in early summer, intense blue spheres measuring 1.5" across appear on tall, unbranched stems. Bumblebees and nocturnal moths delight in their sweet nectar. These distinctive flowers rise above the showy silvery green foliage. Though they look prickly, they are not as rough to the touch as you might expect. Makes a great cut flower or dried everlasting. They add a unique element to any arrangement and are becoming more popular with florists every year.
