Growing Calendar for Cirsium rivulare Atropurpureum - Brook thistle x1 Bare Root perennial
Delivery: Early January to Late March
Soft as Thistledown. Ruby red thistle-like flowers top the sturdy stems of this soft-to-touch, ‘tamed’ member of the thistle family. It is gorgeous with grasses or in wild schemes to attract bees and other pollinators.
Cirsium are perfect plants for sunny borders. They also make attractive cut flowers.
Plant the bare roots into weed free soil and water in.
Cut back spent stems in late autumn when flowering has finished and plants will re-emerge next spring.
Arrived promptly and planted - but yet to see the results so itís difficult to say about the quality of the specimen. I will try and remember to update this later
Plants failed to grow, unhappy as could not get replacement only a refund. First reply treated me like an idiot. I am a qualified gardener.
Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
