Echinops, commonly called Globe Thistle, is an upright, clump-forming perennial with spiny grey-green leaves. Sturdy unbranched red stems hold intense globular blooms high above the foliage beginning in early summer, great for cut or everlasting dried flowers. Best grown in rich loamy soil with plenty of sun. Once established, this plant can easily tolerate drought.
