Buy Cirsium heterophyllum 'Pink Blush' brook thistle: A decorative border thistle

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moist, well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This new perennial forms a clump of thistle-like green foliage (the undersides covered in white felt-like hairs), but it is for the flowers that it is really sought after. These appear in mid- to late summer, held aloft like beacons on the upright stems. Each head is predominantly white, but is laced with dandy pink topknot that looks a little like a spikey haircut. This will make a fab (and unusual) addition to the mixed or herbaceous border, and it will also be right at home in more naturalised settings.

  • Garden care: Divide congested plants from autumn to spring and dead head to prevent self-seeding.
