Echinops bannaticus Blue Globe

OUT OF STOCK
A brilliant member of the sunflower family with dense prickly foliage and stunning flowers. This incredible upright perennial produces a mass of bright blue thistle like globes carried on tall grey-green stems. An unusual and brilliant addition to a summer bouquet, try contrasting with bright yellow flowers for a flashy effect. Very hardy with deciduous foliage, these eye-catching flowers will tolerate most soils in full sun or partial shade and attract butterflies into the garden. Flowering from July to September, they reach a mature height of 1.2m. UK-grown 5cm module plants supplied.
