tips & tricks & facts:
- The word "Echinops" means "Like a Hedgehog"
- The thistle is a symbol of Scotland
- These globes are prickly and aren't much fun to touch. If you use them in a bouquet/corsage/boutonniere make sure there is foliage around it to protect the skin of the individual carrying or wearing your creation.
- We LOVE the texture these provide to an arrangement. They are incredibly hearty so you can use them in places where more delicate flowers might not thrive.
