Globe Thistle Arctic Glow is an eclectic perennial that produces attractive, fanciful, large white globes in abundance on vertical, 36" inch, hardy plants with red colored stems and beautiful silver-green foliage. Create textural interest by adding this fascinating plant to your garden. The globe "flowers" are highly prized by floral creatives for their unique and captivating appearance in bouquets and designs. This plant is in the thistle family and self sows freely. To avoid an over abundance of plants in your landscape, cut all the globes which contain the seed pods before they "loosen" and the seeds begin to drop to the ground. An excellent crop for cut flower growers who are looking to add diversity to their textural offerings. Wear quality gloves when cutting as leaves have prickly tips. Packet: 25 seeds.
