A 2007 Fleuroselect Gold Medallist for its top quality deep steel blue cut flowers
In the garden the sturdy figure of Eryngium planum 'Blue Glitter' and its profusion of steel blue flowers are quite an inspiration.
This sea holly produces excellent fresh or dried flowers which work well in floral arrangements or the can be a long-lasting and subtle accompaniment in a bed of medium-sized grasses (Stipa, Pennisetum).
Alternatively for a strong contrast of yellow and blue, plant with Rudbeckia 'Goldsturm', Echinacea pallida or Anthemis.
An excellent nectar-producing plant that the butterflies love.
Grow in full sun in ordinary, light and well-drained soil. Very hardy.
Maintenance: prune the inflorescences at the end of winter.
