  • Soil: poor, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August

    Ever popular for their globes of blue flowers that attract hoards of insects, globe thistles bring a natural look to the garden. This handsome blue variety is ideal for the middle or back of a sunny, well-drained border. It makes a particularly good cut or dried flower.

  • Garden care: Cut down to the ground after flowering to encourage a second flush of flowers. Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring.
