Cirsium japonicum | Early Rose Beauty
Also known as Plumed Thistles. Bred in Japan and extremely popular in Japan as a cut flower. The flower is like a little pink powder puff. An excellent choice for the border Cirsium japonicum has thistle like dark green leaves that form a big clump with tall stems with the pretty powder pink flowers.
I find that it is best planted amongst other plants to give it some support. Easy care and it likes a well-drained sunny position, although so some shade will be fine. Flowers late summer through autumn. Great as a cut flower and are incredibly popular in Japan in the cut-flower market. Adored by bees.
