More Details

Eryngium bourgatii is one of the blue-est of the beautiful sea hollies, with delicate whorls of spikes around the central central egg. Bees and butterflies love these.

Eryngiums rank with euphorbias, poppies, sunflowers and Parrot tulips as my favourite plants for cutting and for the garden. The sculpted heads in steely grey or rich royal blue are hard to beat. Grow them and grow lots of them.

It was planted last Autumn. Survived very cold winter and performed this Summer with absolutely beautiful blue colors .
