Cirsium aomorense from Japan
The plants we offer have been grown by us from seed collected from Aomori, Japan.
We are probably the first nursery to introduce this species into cultivation. It is native to Japan and forms clumps of long, thick, glossy, softly spined leaves and, from June to August, purple-pink flowers held on erect, cottony haired stems. Fantastic plant for bees and other insects. Height 90 cm. Sun in moisture retentive soil.
