  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July and August
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Spectacular, deep crimson thistles appear on erect stems in July and August above spiny, dark green leaves. This handsome, towering thistle is a valuable addition to a summer garden and looks equally at home in a wildflower meadow, beside water or in groups among other perennials. Although it will tolerate dry conditions and partial shade, it does best in a moist, sunny border.

  • Garden care: Divide congested plants from autumn to spring and cut back to the ground in autumn to prevent self-seeding.
