From seed self-seeds in our garden. needs temperature fluctuations to germinate - easiest to germinate outside (direct-sown or in a pot).

Upright stalk lined with greenish white bell-shaped flowers, and unexpected spines in between. Used as everlasting in dried arrangements. It comes back in the same area of our garden every year, and we're sure to let at least one go to seed, to ensure some plants the following year.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
