Globe Thistle is a must for the pollinator garden. We grew a patch last year that was so consistently covered in bees that the flowers appeared brown rather than blue. Plants are easy to grow in any soil as long as they are given full sun. These are statuesque plants with elegant, prickly foliage.

This variety exhibits lovely white white wooly stems and dark blue flowers.
