perfect for pollinators

This fabulous compact perennial boasts a profusion of egg shaped purplish-blue spiny flower heads over the summer months.  The interesting flowers stand high above the deeply toothed leaves.  This stunning little plant adds beautiful texture as well as adding a unique colour to the garden.  These plants flower in summer  and are so easy to care for.

A favourite of florists for cutting  and drying as well as bees and butterflies this little plant flowers throughout the summer months and is the perfect choice for a sun baked garden.  Blue Hobbit thrives in full sun in dry well drained soils - the more sun it receives the blue the flower heads. A great choice not only for the garden but also fine in a pot. 

Avoid planting it in moist and very fertile soils as the plants tend to sprawl.  If you have an area with poor soil then this is a good choice. Deadhead to keep the plant neat and tidy and cut it back in late summer after flowering has finished.  Drought tolerant once established

May self sow if conditions are ideal but rarely becomes a nuisance.  Plants once in the garden are best left undisturbed as they resent being moved once established.
