Globe Thistle (Great Globe Thistle)

 Safe to Feed
  • Common Name: Globe Thistle (Great Globe Thistle)
  • Latin Name: Echinops spp.
  • Family Name: Asteraceae/Compositae
Non toxic but you might want to wear gloves and remove the prickly spines for small tortoises.

Its attractive flower heads make the Globe Thistle a popular garden plant, and although it is not native to the UK, it is a garden escapee and can often be found growing near railway lines and on waste ground in the wild.
