Eryngium General Information

Eryngium are thistle-like flowers that blanket spiny foliage. Flowers dry beautifully adding texture to bouquets, borders or containers. Great for cut flowers too. Blooms hold their color while lateral flowers develop, until the entire stem is covered with mature blossoms.All are hardy, long-lived, salt and drought tolerant. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Eryngium Plant Care

Loves a sandy, well-drained site. Will tolerate 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.
