After seeing Globe Thistle while walking about last weekend I’d been wondering why I never see them at a nursery, only in other people’s gardens, which makes it harder to get one for yourself (there’s that pesky “stealing” issue again). Then the other night I made a quick stop at Garden Fever on my way home. I hadn’t been for two weeks and needed to see what was new (yes, I had to get my fix). And there it was! I found the most amazing Globe Thistle, an Echinops sphaerocephalus ‘Arctic Glow’ - silver/white globes and deep red stems – sold!
I made my way to the cashier who was just finishing up with another customer. She looked up and said “hi to you and your dangerous plant,” yep, that’s me buying more danger for the danger garden! I’m thinking I might need to go back for another.
