Echinops, or Globe Thistle, has a wonderful natural blue color for a spiky pod. We have then taken those and sprayed them beautiful metallic shades of Gold/Silver/Copper as well as dyed them.
The pods average from about 1" diameter to about 1 1/2" with some being slightly smaller or larger. I have removed all the prickly stems so you do not have to worry about them :-)
You will get an assortment of sizes in this listing of 6 stems on 4"-6"" stems. Interested in getting just the head and no stem? We can do that as well and you can buy that right here as well.
