Echinops ritro

Echinops ritro is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae, native to southern central and southeastern Europe, and western Asia. It is a compact, bushy herbaceous perennial thistle, growing to 60 cm (24 in) tall, with broad prickly leaves and bearing globes of steel-blue flowers 2.5 cm - 4.5 cm in diameter, in late summer.[1]

This plant[2] and the subspecies E. ritro subsp. ruthenicus[3] have gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Names and Taxonomy

Taxonomy

Comments: Kartesz (1994 and 1999) spell the epithet 'rito', however, this appears to be in error. The International Plant Names Index has 'ritro' (web data as of May 2011), citing Species Plantarum (Linnaeus 1753). So does Flora of North America (vol. 19, 2006).
