Echinops ~ Globe Thistle
August 27, 2008
With its unusual shape, texture, and color, globe thistle adds much interest to both the garden and vase. The foliage definately resembles a thistle, so this plant might work better in a cottage garden rather than a formal garden.

Height – 30″ to 48″
Bloom time – mid to late summer
Plant in average, well drained soil. Drought tolerant.
Good for fresh cut flowers or dried.
