Generalities Globe thistle
The Globe thistle develops like a perennial herb. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Globe thistle isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a blue colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 1,5 m in height.

Exposure Globe thistleSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Globe thistle in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Globe thistle plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.

Watering Globe thistleTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Treatments Globe thistle
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Globe thistle
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
