Ornamental thistle, native to the Balkans. Produces brilliant red flowers on tall stems in summer and will continue flowering if dead-headed. Silvery-leaves, intriguing bristly bronze-coloured flower buds and last well as a cut flower. Very attractive to bees and butterflies. Best in full sun and moist but well drained soils.
