About Echinops 'Veitch's Blue'
Echinops plants are exceptionally resilient. They withstand drought and endure summer heat, thriving even in locations with full sun exposure. These plants flourish while maintaining an upright and robust posture in loose, somewhat humus-rich, and arid soil. In areas that are excessively moist or nutrient-dense, the globe thistle has a propensity to topple over.
