Very cool biennial Thistle relative that is flat out gorgeous in foliage and further piles it on with midsummer lavender-pink Thistle flowers.  Pretty fun with some of the dark-leaved Dahlias.  Stunning first year rosettes that ramp up to purplish thistleacious flowers the next year.  This will self-sow a bit, thank goodness.
