Worth growing for both their statuesque appearance as well as their flowerheads, which if picked and cooked before the flowers emerge, are delicious when drizzled with butter.
Impressive and decorative perennials, they look wonderful in the border, adding height and structure..
Plant the bare-root offsets in a sunny, sheltered position at 90cm intervals.
Keep them well watered initially and remove any flowerheads that appear in the first year.
Cut back in autumn and apply a generous layer of mulch in spring.
Huge silver grey, deeply cut leaves up to a metre long are produce in large clumps.
In late summer and autumn the flower stems rise above the foliage to produce heads of rich blue thistle like flowers.
