'Giant Sea Holly'
Native to Western Asia, Eryngium Giganteum is known commonly as “Miss Willmott’s Ghost” or Giant Sea-Holly.
Reaching up to a metre tall, this Eryngium is easily recognisable by their thistle-like leaves. The foliage is a conspicuous grey-green colour, making it easy to see why it’s called a ghost, and the flowers are a
beautiful blue-silver during the summer.
Leaves attach to the stem in pairs, and flowers appear in a cone-shaped umbel. Flowers can reach up to 6cm long, and bloom from June to September.
Attractive to bees. Fully Hardy to -15°C.
