Globe Thistle

Globe Thistle


Notes: Vibrant violet blue with globe shaped flowers on long stemmed silvery blue foliage. Very striking as a cut flower and holds its blue colour amazingly well after drying. Grows in any soil as long as it is well drained. Deer resistant, drought tolerant and works well in a wildflower garden or herbaceous border. Great addition to a Moon Garden.


Instructions: Sow 2 mm deep in early Spring. Can be started indoors 6 weeks before the last frost or in more temperate climates sowing them outdoors in the fall is recommended. Germination is 14 to 21 days.
