Clump-forming, taprooted herbaceous perennial with rounded, pinnatifid, spiny dark green basal leaves with conspicuous silver veins. In mid to late summer, blue stems bear blue flowers in cylindrical umbels 1-1/4 inches long, with lance-shaped blue-tinged silver brachts. Height 18 inches; spread 12 inches. Good plant for naturalizing or to provide a long-lasting display in a mixed border. Flowers are good for dried arrangements.

For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed in autumn into pots using standard loam-based seed compost mixed with coarse horticultural sand. Use 1 part compost to 1 part sand. Cover with coarse horticultural sand and place in a cold frame. Germination takes 2-3 months. Grow in dry well-drained, poor to moderately-fertile soil in full sun.
