Echinops bannaticus ‘Taplow Blue’
Same awesome globes of 2-3″ purple-blue flowers in summer, but a softer, paler blue. Globe thistles attract hummingbirds, butterflies, honeybees, and other nectar loving wildlife. Great cut and dry flower. Full sun. Good drainage. Height 4-5’. Spread 2-4’. Rabbit resistant. Somewhat deer resistant. Good cut flower. Z3-8
*Try mixing different varieties of globe thistles that have different shades of blue and varying heights for an ethereal effect.
