Description

Soft as Thistledown. Ruby red thistle-like flowers top the sturdy stems of this soft-to-touch, ‘tamed’ member of the thistle family. It is gorgeous with grasses or in wild schemes to attract bees and other pollinators.

Cirsium are perfect plants for sunny borders. They also make attractive cut flowers.

Plant the bare roots into weed free soil and water in.

Cut back spent stems in late autumn when flowering has finished and plants will re-emerge next spring.
