Bees and butterflies adore Echinops. They are so undemanding that you will too. Equally fabulous in the garden or in a vase as a fresh or dried cut flower, their impressive profile brings intriguing definition to surrounding softer forms. Thriving in well-drained soil, even if it’s poor or sandy, the Globe Thistle is a sensational perennial worth making room for.
Echinops bannaticus ‘Star Frost’ (P-1592)
Round, pearly-white blooms sojourn on well-branched steadfast stalks that aren’t quite as tall as Echinops ‘Blue Glow’s. Thistle-like narrow green leaves flash downy gray-green flip sides, while the distinctive flowers proudly illuminate a drift of Schizachyrium ‘MinnblueA’.
Blooms July–early September
Size: 3-1/3' high x 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
