A striking architectural plant with green foliage, marbled with silver. Blue and silver spiky flowers during the summer. Often used for cut flower displays and adds winter interest to borders if the flower spikes are left on.
A useful plant for pollinators and birds love the seeds in winter.
Introduced in 1997.
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 flower heads are long lasting when cut and can also be dried.
Height and Spread: 45cm x 65cm
Common name(s): Moroccan Sea Holly, Marble Leaf Eryngium
All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots 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.
