Lynn, Did it spread by seed or roots for you?

Comment by Lynn Bober on February 24, 2012 at 2:32pm
I had an opposite experience and found them to be invasive. I ended up removing them and was sorry to have to do it, because I liked their structure. May have to do with soil type.

Thank You N. Brookie, I really like them but with the name thistle they scared me.

Comment by B. Brookie White on February 24, 2012 at 1:51pm

It isn't and you will probably want to pick them for dried bouquets.

Does anyone know if Globe Thistle is invasive?

Congrats Robin! It'll be a few weeks before anything thinks about growing here. I can't wait!

the cream ones are pretty, I know what you mean about Menards, I was shocked to see them there also. I hope they have them again this year.

Comment by Lynn Bober on February 8, 2012 at 3:29pm
I don't have any pictures, but they are a cream-colored flower. I also picked these up from Menards and I was surprised to find them there as I have only seen them featured in specialty nursery catalogs where they are pretty pricey

"Joseph, if you want to grow fabulous dahlias (not the low growing kind), they must be staked. What the hubby and I do is put in a tomato ladder and an 8 foot steel stake at the base of each plant at the time they are planted. We…"
