Dipsacus sativus bees, birds and hummingbirds love the flowers

The Teasel (Dipsacus Sativus) Flower Seed is a biennial flower that adds a touch of beauty to any garden. The flower has a long lifespan, lasting two years and re-seeding, and grows up to eight feet tall. As a member of the honeysuckle family, this flower will attract pollinators to your home garden.

Teasel plants will perform well in sunny areas with well-drained soil. Once established they need very little care and are fairly drought tolerant. Deer do not bother the Fuller's Teasel plant. The Teasel flowers are very popular with bees, birds and hummingbirds who love the flowers and seeds.

Teasels are considered a biennial. The first year they will not produce a bloom, but the second year, tall spikes will form with flower heads that are 4 inches, cylindrical-shaped and made up of a mass of tiny flowers. The flowers are usually a lavender color and bloom in a band from the bottom of the flower head to the top, lasting about a month. To keep a patch of Teasel plants in the garden, let a few of the flower heads go to seed. The Teasel flower seeds will drop and self-sow.

How To Grow Teasel From Seed: The Teasel seeds can be directly sown in the ground in early spring or started indoors. Prepare a seedbed by weeding and loosening the top several inches of soil. Sow the Fuller's Teasel seeds and lightly cover the seeds with soil. Keep moist until germination. Thin the Teasel seedlings to 12 inches apart.
