Distinguished by its spiky leaves, silvery stems, and deep bluish-violet orbs, thistle adds a striking textural accent to your floral designs. This late summer bloomer is often found in autumn centerpieces and arrangements and is a popular choice of rustic-themed weddings and other events. It is especially popular with those who like the look of edgier designs or an alternative to traditional, soft bouquets. Combine it with succulents and cattail for an earthy look, or with blue and lavender scabiosa, anemone and wax flowers for a rustic bouquet of bright colors.
Did you know that the thistle is Scotland’s national flower? While no one is exactly sure how this came to be, one legend claims prickly thistle bushes saved a group of sleeping Scottish warriors from being ambushed by the Norse army in the 15th century. When one of the enemies stepped through a thistle bush, his screams alerted the Scots, who were able to defeat the invader. The thistle has been an important symbol of Scottish heraldry for over 500 years. It also represents one of the highest honors the country can give an individual.
