Echinops ritro

AndrewR

By Andrewr


Echinops ritro (Echinops ritro)

This has grown in horrible soil in full sun by my front gate for twenty years. Flowers, beloved by bees, on stems around three feet. The leaves are a bit coarse so some screening is useful. Sometimes flowers again late in the season if stems are cut down when the flowers are over; alternatively leaves them for finches to enjoy
