Cirsium is a clump forming deciduous perennial with deep green foligae and lovely deep crimson / red thistle like flowers on tall slender stems.  This is a great plant for a border or cutting patch and we love it in a naturalistic planting style growing in amongst grasses.  It brings lots of wildlife into the garden, bees, butterflies, moths and birds feast on their seed heads in winter.  Great also in a wild flower arrangement.
