Echinops Tienschianum (3 litres)
Globe thistles are not easy from seed – but we manage. One of the main needs for the thistle family is drainage, and for this reason we always let them grow on in tall pots so that the tap root is not disturbed.
This is the second of our taller option of Globe Thistle. A generously huge plant with strong stems, the round flower heads are tennis ball size and prickly. The bees are often seen very drunk and happy when they are in flower late June through till August. This impressive Globe thistle can grow to 6 feet.
