Ritro White

Echinops Ritro White is the perfect flower for the gardeners who prefer to keep it simple. Easy to grow, perennial, tolerant of pretty much everything + funky, minimalist design = perfect bobbing orbs of ease and tranquility.

Black thumbs: welcome to the start of your success story. These fuzzy, silvery disco ball flowers are a must-grow pop of shape and texture for your low-maintenance, perennial, cut-flower garden. They're tolerant of questionably healthy soil, irregular watering, and generally haphazard gardening skills. They have a vase life that never ends, look awesome dried, self-seed like it's their job, and are easy to harvest on stiff stems. You can grow these, we promise!

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, in well draining soil
When to Plant Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon. Plant outside after your average last frost in the spring
When to Expect Blooms Late summer into fall
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells. Pick blooms to encourage more. Spiny leaves will cut you if you let 'em. Wear gloves when handling
Extra Credit Great for dried flowers. An excellent option to grow in salty soil. Deadhead often to prevent spread through self-seeding
