The Globe thistle is blooming.
I love round flowers..
Echinops likes full sun and will do quite well in poor soil. It does not require much water. The foliage is not particularly attractive - has quite a "weedy" look. It has spiney picky leaves that tend to turn brown at the bottom well before the plant blooms.I think it looks best if you can hide it in the middle of other plants.


  1. What a great shot using globe thistle, which I agree has ugly foliage. Have you used it in dried arrangements? I'm a newbie at doing dried and silk arrangements and am eager for tips. Susan

  2. Thanks,Susan. Yes, I have used it in dried arrangements. It is great because the stalks are sturdy providing good support.
