How to take care of Echinops ritro Veitch's Blue

Echinops ritro Veitch's Blue is a non-demanding, hardy perennial do well in almost any soil but for best results mix in some sand, plant in full sun or partial shade. The flower colour is affected by the temperature, the cooler your region the deeper the colour. Thistle plants are used to warm climates and will equally do well in moderate and warm areas. Provide a well prepared planting area where the root can develop well into the lower ground (deep rooting). Plant so that the top of the root is 1" below the soil line. If supplied as bare roots: Please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant.
