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.

Delphinium Mixed Colors - This mix is full of deep and pastel colour. Cut the flowers to encourage more blooms. Hummingbirds and Bees love the rich colour and nectar of these show stoppers. Delphinium makes a stunning statement in any garden or bouquet.   Verbascum - Bees and hummingbirds adore this supertall, long time bloomer. Easy care. Great backdrop or focal point. Similar in habit to Foxgloves but produces even taller, branching spires with bright golden yellow flowers, from mid-summer onwards. Forms a dense basil clump of gray-green, woolly felt covered leaves, making it Drought Tolerant or Deer Resistant.   Lychnis Maltese Cross - Striking red 3-inch flower globes against bright green, lance shaped leaves, borne on stiffly erect stems. Plant in masses for the optimum wow factor.
