Eryngium planum ‘Blue Glitter’
Drought? Baking hot spot? Deer? No problem! ‘Blue Glitter’ throws out more flowers sooner than older varieties on well branched plants. Tough and well-armed, the careful gardener adores these eye-catching steel blue thistle flowers for arrangements (fresh or dried). Plants stand tall at 2-3’ in clumps half as wide; they bask in full sun and are best in sandy, well drained, dry soils (they also tolerate semi-regular watering). Bloom time starts in June and goes through September.
