Echinops

Globe Thistle

Bees and butterflies adore Echinops. They are so easy to care for that you will too. Equally stunning in the garden or as a fresh or dried cut flower, their perfectly round blooms and statuesque profile bring intriguing definition to surrounding softer forms. Thriving in well drained soil, even if it is poor or sandy, the Globe Thistle is an undemanding perennial well worth making room for.

Topping erect mahogany-hued stems, snowy spheres provide a statuesque element heightened by prickly, silver-washed greenery. Planted with stately companions like Aconitum, Digitalis ‘Gigantea Gelber Herold’ and Veronicastrum, its noble orbs appear to glow.

Blooms July–early September.

Size: 2-1/2'–3' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
