What a beautiful day, after waiting a long time the moment has finally come, the new thistle harvest is on its way to Bries aan Zee and can now be ordered in our web shop. After two years of failed harvests, we are very proud to have these beautiful thistles back in our range.
These gorgeous bunches of thistles, or echinops, have an intense deep blue colour, when placed in a window or in some sunlight you can also detect a hint of purple in these dried flowers. Globe thistles, like almost all other thistle species, are quite prickly. It is therefore not surprising that the scientific name Echinops is derived from the Greek word "echinos", which in turn means "hedgehog".
Dried thistles are in a beautiful natural blue colour with light green leaves. It's an iridescent spiked ball. Dried echinops add the finishing touch to your floral arrangement. Echinops is already beautiful on its own, but combine it with other dried flowers of different colours and shapes and it's sure to please everyone who sees it. Grown and harvested naturally on a small flower farm in the Netherlands. All dried flowers are unique and delicate, no bunch resembles the other.
