Echinops ritro 'Veitch's Blue' (Globe Thistle) - 1 Gallon Potted Perennial
7 left in stock
Considered by most growers as the loveliest Globe Thistle, Echinops Ritro 'Veitch's Blue' is an excellent rebloomer that produces abundant, dark violet-blue flowers at the end of gracefully curving, branched, silvery stems. Blooming from mid summer to early fall, the bold and ornamental, steel blue globe-shaped flowers (the size of a golf ball) rise above the foliage of sharply divided, dark green leaves, covered in down beneath. Adding outstanding contrast, interest and contribution to the landscape. Excellent choice for cutting, it flowers more than once in a season. Truly lovely and perfectly suited to the perennial border or the cutting garden. A full sun lover but partial shade is tolerated.
