Echinops ritro

Stunning, globular, purple flower heads adorn thornless, finely-cut, grey-green foliage. Beautiful as a fresh or dry flower and popular with bees, this drought-hardy perennial prefers full sun or part-shade. Can handle poor soil with good drainage. Flower colour is more intense in areas with cool nights. The flower heads also provide a nice colour long before the actual flowers open, prolonging the ‘flowering’ season. 20 seeds.
