Eryngium bourgatti 'Picos Blue'

Plant details

The blue flowers of Eryngium bourgatii 'Picos Blue' open on top of sturdy, upright stems in early and midsummer. It requires free-draining ground and a sunny position. Like all eryngiums, the tiny flowers are packed together in a tight cluster, surrounded by a ruff of spiny bracts. Keep away from the edge of a border if children are present because the spines are very sharp. Eryngium bourgatii 'Picos Blue' is an excellent plant for gravel gardens and large herbaceous borders. The flowers, which appear in July and August, last well when cut and can also be dried.
