The intriguing globe-shaped flowers of this perennial have long, pointed petals that create a spike-like texture in your garden. The blue flowers sit on top of thick, silvery stems with spiny foliage throughout summer. Echinops are best suited to flower beds and borders within a cottage or informal garden. The spiny, cobwebbed leaves provide interest from spring until the flowers appear in late summer. Echinops look their best at the back of a border combined with other late summer-flowering plants like cardoon and echinacea. They are well suited to growing in gravel gardens and wildlife areas as it ’s a magnet for bees and other pollinating insects.

Where to grow Echinop plants
The Echinops is a Mediterranean species, so it prefers a well-draining loam or chalk soil that receives full sun throughout the day.

How to grow Echinops plants
Echinops are drought-tolerant and only require water during sustained periods of dry weather. When you do water, do so to keep the soil moist but wet. As young plants, you will need to water Echinops regularly to help them develop a strong and deep root system. Deadhead flowers before they go to seed to stop them from spreading to areas of the garden where you don ’t want them to grow. Cut back after flowering to encourage a second flush of blooms. You may need to stake taller varieties only if your garden is exposed and windy.
This ECHINOPS bannaticus Blue Globe comes in a 2 litre pot
