Cirsium rivulare 'Atropurpureum' is a striking ornamental thistle with large, deep purple flowers on long sturdy stems above spiky dark green foliage. Although it can tolerate dry conditions and partial shade it thrives in a sunny herbaceous border and pairs well with grasses and other tall perennials. Its nectar and pollen rich flowers are highly attractive to beneficial creatures including bees, butterflies and other pollinators, with seeds for birds.

March-June flowering and again from August-December. Best in a sunny position in most garden soil. Height & spread: 120cm x 60cm (4' x 2').
