Description

Adored by Florists, Gardeners and Butterflies

Long-lasting, metallic-blue flower heads are surrounded by a spiky skirt of vibrant purple bracts. Silvery, veined foliage transforms to white in the summer, and is complemented by the unique blooms from midsummer to fall. Stems can be cut back after flowering, but many gardeners choose to leave the attractive seed heads untouched. A favourite among butterflies, sea holly is also popular in bouquets and dried arrangements. Highly tolerant of heat and resistant to drought. Eryngium x zabelii

This item will ship in Spring 2018. ORDER NOW and we'll ship at the proper planting time for your zone.

I've enjoy other varieties of Sea Holly for a number of year. The Donard variety is by far the most strikingly beautiful. The flowers are large and very showy. I'm placing an order for more.
