Eye-catching in any planting scheme

Also known as Sea Holly, these herbaceous perennials are surprisingly hassle-free. With their silver-veined, spiky bracts and vibrant blue flowers, they make for an impressive feature in any planting scheme. Eryngium produce long-lasting blooms from July through to August which make them ideal for flower cuttings. The Big Blue variety boasts an egg-shaped flowerhead surrounded by a ruff of silvery blue. Colouration becomes vivid in full sun and its spiky foliage discourages wildlife from grazing.

How Your Order Will Arrive

About your plant - Our reliable nurseries have a real passion for plants. Their extensive range and reputation are key to the foundations of the business. Our expert nursery has spent decades perfecting the art of watering, feeding, and pruning perennials, and will do so until hours before they are packed.

Packaging- Please note that perennials die back to soil level in winter. If ordered during the colder months they might not experience the best growth. However, provided they are cared for accordingly they will grow back in the spring. Your perennials will be expertly packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box, which will hold it securely in place. Your plant will then be delivered via a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

Please note: where your plant is supplied with a pot, your plant's 'Height on Arrival' includes the pot

Sea Holly is relatively carefree and easy to look after as they are resilient to pests and diseases. Ensure to plant them in a spot with access to plenty of sunshine. This herbaceous perennial tolerates most soil types but thrives in well-drained soil. They only require occasional watering. During winter, ensure to protect its roots by covering the base with a thick layer of mulch. The seed heads should be left uncut as they are an attractive feature. Trim back spent foliage during spring to prevent rot.

Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!

Advice on hot and droopy plants

If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.

Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
