This biennial sea holly produces a rosette of fleshy green leaves in its first season. Its character changes in the second year when it produces a stiff, much-branched stem with showy, silvery white flower heads, composed of a cone of tiny flowers and viciously spiny bracts.

Love this beautiful and trouble free plant, and have grown it in several gardens I have made; London, and two other counties. It is very elegant, and the colour sits well with almost any others, but because it is rather showy, I feel it is best with more subtle plants of a lesser stature.
