Echinops Flower Seeds produce plants that yield interesting and striking golf-ball-sized blossoms on tall stems that start fuzzy, becoming pricklier as they mature. Echinops may not bloom the first year, but it is well worth waiting to see the second year’s blossoms arrive, right along with the bees, butterflies, and then the songbirds in the fall!
Echinops, pronounced EHK-in-ops, commonly called Globe Thistle, is a perennial that does well in just about any well-drained soil. Once established, it is drought- and heat tolerant, readily reseeding itself for “forever” blossoms. This long-lived perennial has exhibited vigor for up to 10 years! Forming clumps, this ornamental flower never has a “down” time. From its first emergence and through the growth and seeding cycle, it presents a wonderful and interesting feature for your flowerbeds and cut flower arrangements.
Each order of our fresh Echinops seeds is filled by hand, put into a resealable plastic bag and then placed into a labeled seed packet. It is our goal to provide our customers the best in freshness and quality.
