Globe thistles interplanted with agastaches.

Echinops bannaticus ‘Taplow Blue’

This gorgeous globe thistle is highly attractive to butterflies and bees. An eye-catching, yet undemanding perennial for the back of a herbaceous or mixed border, it’s best planted in poor, well-drained soil in full sun.

Agastaches ‘Blue Fortune’ or Giant Hyssop

Agastache are herbaceous perennials with simple, aromatic leaves and small 2-lipped tubular flowers in whorls forming dense spikes, in summer and autumn
