Eryngium General Information:

Eryngium are thistle-like flowers that blanket spiny foliage. Blooms hold their color while lateral flowers develop, until the entire stem is covered with mature blossoms.

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.
