Echinops Ritro "Globe Thistle"

It is hard to believe this weed like foliage is a neat, drought resistant , tough as boots perennial garden flower. The leaves look like they have a 'downy" quality. the amazing spiky blue ball flowers are quite interesting (once you get past the " I think this looks more like a WEED than a flower" thinking .. it flourishes in my hot dry sun bed .. filling in the space with something I find fascinating !
