GLOBE THISTLE DOING WHAT THEY DO
If you are looking for a cool perennial that can go for a while without water, try the Globe Thistle, or Echinops. Also, GT makes a super cut flower, lasting for weeks in the vase. If you have a friend with too much Thistle, they (the plant, not the friend) can be divided in the spring. Hint, hint.
