Globe Thistle

A large group of low-maintenance, thistle-like perennials requiring only well-drained soil, sun and occasional water. Valued for their long-blooming flowers and striking, gray-woolly foliage, the blossoms also attract bees, butterflies, moths and hummingbirds. Excellent cut and dried flowers. Start by division or seed. Give plenty of room to grow. Cut flowers for dying just before the florets open. Wear gloves to protect hands from prickly leaves.
