Echinops 'Blue Glow' is a striking perennial prized for its spherical, steel-blue flowerheads that bloom atop sturdy stems in midsummer. This drought-tolerant plant is perfect for adding structural interest to sunny borders, cottage gardens, or naturalized landscapes. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, attracting pollinators such as bees and butterflies while providing winter interest as the dried flowerheads persist.
