Some Globe Thistles can be large, but ‘Veitch Blue’ is ideal for smaller gardens. It grows as a compact clump forming perennial reaching an eventual height of around 100cm and width of around 45cm. It has strong silver coloured stems that hold the globes of blue/mauve flowers, often up to 4cm across, with dissected foliage that is spiny and greyish-silver white in colour.


A great architectural plant for bringing unusual shaped thistle-like flowers to summer borders, appearing from mid-summer until autumn. The flowers are excellent dried and last well as cut flowers. They are also attractive to butterflies searching for nectar.


Echinops look outstanding as statement plants and can tie in a whole border theme when placed at intervals to more structured displays and to complement silver and blue colour schemes.

Echinops (Globe Thistles) grow best in soil that is poor, but well-drained and in full sun, although they will tolerate almost any situation and will readily repeat flower once in a place they love.
Established clumps can be divided from autumn to spring.
Brookside Nursery Top Tip - Echinops can self-seed so remove faded flowers to prevent this if you don’t want new plants appearing.
