Add a unique touch to your garden with the Echinops ritro, also known as the Southern Globethistle. This unusual perennial boasts 2" spherical blue flowers in mid to late summer, making it perfect for adding color to the middle or back of your border. With prickly, dark green leaves, the Echinops ritro prefers full sun and well-drained soil, but can easily grow in nutritionally poor soil. This plant also makes for great dried flower displays and, by removing all the flowers early in the season, it can even produce a second flush of blooms later in the summer. Native to Europe and western Asia, this low-maintenance plant is drought tolerant and hardy to zone 3. Get your hands on a Southern Globethistle today and make your garden stand out!
