Anyone know where I can get some globe thistle seeds?

I got echinops seeds in a Lake Valley seed packet -- at Frank's Nurseries,
which is a garden center/chain store.  Almost every seed catalog I've gotten
recently offers it...look in the perennials or everlastings
you can get Echinops ritro about anywhere.

Two places offering Echinops ritro in their online catalogs:
Parks Seeds
Pinetree Garden Seeds

Several mail order plant companies offer 'improved' forms.

Eryngium is sea holly...also neat, and I think it's a group of plants Dr.
Seuss would appreciate.
