  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: dry, well-drained, poor to moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Thistle-like cones of bright blue flowers are surrounded by a ruff of spiky bracts, which turn from silvery blue at their base to gold at their tips. These form on blue stems that are clothed with yellow foliage, so the overall effect is quite colourful. This is a sun-loving plant that can be used in herbaceous borders or prairie-style planting schemes. The flowerheads are long-lasting and can be dried and added to arrangements.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large colonies in spring. Avoid the temptation to cut back the flower-heads in autumn as they provide interest in the winter garden.

I bought two of these because I have had great success with this plant in my other garden. However these look a bit sickly. I have planted them in a larger pot, and hope with time they may improve. Only two leaves on each plant, and it looks like something has been snacking on them!
