Echinops ritro (globe thistle)

Description

Globes of blue color for a late summer show. A bold, tall plant, Echinops Ritro is highly ornamental. Silvery foliage is deeply cut, shaped like lances. Appears as though the foliage is prickly, but actually the undersides are downy. Excellent for cutting or dried flower arrangements.
