Large, bright orange or yellow thistle-like flowers stand above sharp spiny leaves, making a fine display in the summer months. This very unusual annual prefers full sun and well-drained soil, where it will surprise all who expected a blue flower!.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
