Also known as Globe Thistle, Echinops produce globular, spiky violet-blue flower heads on 2-3' plants. A perennial staple for both perennial gardens and cuts, the flowers bloom mid-summer to early fall, and can be cut and sold either fresh or dry. The bristly quality of the flower heads give additional texture in mixed bouquets.
