Very attractive clump forming perennial with stiff 'cobwebby', spiny leaves. Bears spherical richly-coloured flower heads with a mass of tiny sky-blue petals over deep blue bristly bracts. Attracts bees in profusion. Prefers sunny and well drained soils and makes a great cut flower. Will grow into bold clumps over a few seasons and make a powerful mid-summer show. Fully hardy. .H:90cm.
