Plant Information

Cirsium rivulare Atropurpureum is a clump forming hardy perennial which produces a semi evergreen rosette of thistle like foliage and all Summer long masses of deep crimson thistle like flowers held on stems to 1.2m high are produced. These can be used for cutting

Excellent in a mixed border where it associates well with a wide range of other plants and provides excellent value with its long flowering season.
