Echinops are undemanding plants that tolerate a wide range of conditions but do best in poor soil and full sun. They form large architectural plants which require some space. The flowers are made up of a ball of spiny bracts and attract large numbers of bees and butterflies. They also make good dried flowers. Supplied in a 2-3 Litre container.
