Plant Information

Echinops Platinum Blue, also known as Globe Thistle. A beautiful clump forming garden perennial with silvery, slightly spiny thistle foliage which creates a dense clump and in July to September produces tall upright, branched flower stems bearing round, ball shaped dark blue flowers. The plant is particularly attractive to bees and butterflies.

Echinops Platinum Blue can be cut back hard in May which will delay flowering a few weeks but creates a much shorter plant with more blooms. Best grown in well drained soil in full sun or dappled shade.
