Eryngium are thistle-like flowers that blanket spiny foliage. Great for cut flowers, also dry beautifully. Salt tolerant.
Loves a sandy, well drained site - tolerates drought and neglect in hot dry spells. Cut down flower stems to prevent seeding or let it fill in a difficult spot. A long taproot makes it difficult to move or divide this plant, but can be done in spring if necessary. Plants will be slow to recover.
