Metallic-blue spiky spheres attract bees and butterflies July – August. Architectural and geometric, Echinops lends structure to an otherwise amorphous or overly soft garden. Its deeply-divided significant leaves, green with silver beneath, make a handsome clump at the base while the flower soars three feet high. Asked what its favorite thing is, it will reply, "well-drained soil!"

Minimum temperature: -40° F
