Description

Certainly the spiniest and most beautifully impressive of all "Globe Thistles". Rarely encountered even on its home in the Greek Islands, this compact plant produces attractive spherical heads with bright sky-blue, protruding flowers. The foliage consists of thick, tough, divided, waxy leaves, which are very dangerously spiked all over, and this plant is best admired and not touched! Very, very few fertile seeds are ever produced, most plants giving no seeds at all, hence the low packet count!

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds in spring in gentle heat and grow plants on in gritty compost before finally planting out in a very well drained, and preferably sheltered spot.
