Such a pretty mauve pink flower, and so unlike other thistles. Thanks for the intro!
🙂 I discovered them in the dry meadow at Cambridge Botanics a few years ago (https://www.botanic.cam.ac.uk/the-garden/gardens-plantings/dry-meadow-cory-lodge/). Anything that can cope with our increasingly dry summers seems like a good idea.
I love how demonstration/teaching gardens are showing us options for the changing climate. Adaptation!
What a pretty color. At first glance, it recalls our pale coneflower. Very nice!
I just bought one last week, isn’t it gorgeous?
Snap! Yes it is.
This is a push-me-pull-you kind of plant, always wanting to look in every direction. It’s a fascinating mixture.
