This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Only recently introduced, this striking plume thistle looks particularly effective in a prairie-style setting, where its stiff, upright habit offers an attractive contrast to the soft silhouette of the ornamental grasses.

  • Garden care: Divide congested plants from autumn to spring and cut back to the ground in autumn to prevent self-seeding.
