"Blue Spire" Russian sage paired with Echinops ritro or Globe Thistle. The flowers have a metallic lustre and may be cut and dried for winter decoration. The plants are suitable for the back of the herbaceous border and will attract many bees and butterflies into the garden. The prickly blue balls in July - they are actually softer than they look. It also seems to be quite drought tolerant.

Blue plant combination, Echinops and Perovskia, at Wisley. Love the blu s of echinops, not crazy a bout the thorniness. They would look pretty in front of amsonia hubrichtii.

Stately delphiniums are the backbone of this colorful cottage garden plan.
