Description

With huge thistle-style flowers in the richest velvet purple, this is a must-have for any rough area of grass or wild flowers. It’s showy enough to make it into people’s mixed borders too, and as you can see, the bees and butterflies love it.

Care Tips

Once introduced to the ideal location, plants will self-seed freely and establish a strong colony.
