Plant Details

'Blue Hobbit' is a dwarf Eryngium, perfect for the front of a border or a container. Many small, steely blue flowerheads from May to September.

Thistle-like foliage. A very tough little plant. Very happy in coastal gardens and very drought-resistant.

Eryngiums make a striking addition to dry, sunny borders and gravel gardens. They have thistle-like flowers, made up of tiny flowers packed together in a tight cluster, surrounded by a ruff of spiny bracts.

The flowerheads are long lasting when cut and can also be dried.

Height and Spread: 35cm x 45cm

Common name(s): Sea Holly

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
