SNIPPED

The 10foot thistle thing is a huge thistle like artichoke family plant
Huge silver grey leaves with large purple flowering heads
(Bumble bees all over them) Anyone know the name.

Many thanks

Niall

Possibly Echinops (Globe Thistle) not to be confused with Echinopsis
does it look like the photo in these links ?
