Mediterranean sea holly, Bourgati's eryngo
Originally from the Mediterranean basin, Mediterranean sea holly is a good choice for dry and sunny rock gardens, with poor or moderately fertile soils.
Indented green foliage with cream marbling. Silvery blue flowers. Height: 20 to 45 cm.
We recommend planting Eryngium bourgatii in a border to accompany other rockery perennials, such as: Sedum, Anthemis, Santolina, Artemisia, Ruta graveolens or as a contrast to with very popular Stipa tenuifolia (Mexican feather grass).
For rock gardens and dry rockeries.
Grow in the sun in light soil, well-drained in the winter, neutral to alkaline. Avoid heavy, damp, clay soils.
