Echinops bannaticus
`Blue Glow’

Exceptionally easy to grow, this “globe Thistle” likes average to poor soil best and needs little water. Deep blue, spherical 2”globes are held on branching stems over a 6-8 week period in mid to late Summer. The buds are nice to look at even before it opens. Good specimen plant and an excellent cut flower fresh or dried. Very attractive to bees, birds and butterflies! Reseeds!
