These bright blue globes are great as cut flowers or as eye catching focal points in your garden. They do very well in containers, are deer resistant and drought tolerant. Bees love them!

Globe Thistles or Echinops ritro 'Veitch's Blue' are especially useful in smaller gardens and in mixed flower plantings. The basal leaves do tend to deteriorate, so try to conceal them with smaller plants that allow the colourful flowerheads to stand above. Globe thistle is especially valued for dried arrangements, but be sure to cut the flowerheads just before the tiny flowers are fully open. Dry quickly upside-down in a warm, airy environment, and they will retain their blue colour. An added bonus: bumblebees, moths and butterflies find the flowers irresistible!
