  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: dry, well-drained, poor to moderately fertile soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and August
  • Flower colour: steel-blue flowers surrounds by silvery white bracts
  • Other features: ideal for use in dried flower arrangements
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Teasel-like pale green flowers, which turn to steely-blue as they mature, are surrounded a ruff of silvery white bracts. This rosette-forming biennial is great for the front or middle of a sunny, well-drained border. The attractive foliage is displayed to best advantage if the plant is mulched with or planted in gravel. A biennial plant, it will die after flowering in its second year, but self-seeds freely in a good spot, thus ensuring more will follow.

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