Eryngium (Sea Holly)

Eryngium (Sea Holly)

Sea holly (Eryngium) is a spiky, stiffly branched, architectural plant, perhaps best given space to make its own statement, ideally in a gravel garden. It will also integrate in mixed, sunny borders, providing an excellent contrast to softer plants. If you are growing a blue sea holly plant in containers, place them with other plants that can tolerate dry conditions. Some of them are biennials. This striking plant has deeply cut, bluish-grey leaves, veined white, and spiky steel-blue cones of flowers. Cultivars, which vary in height and the exact shade of blue, include ‘Blue Glitter’, ‘Sapphire Blue’ and ‘Big Blue’.

Sea holly should be grown in full sun and in light, well draining soil. Sea holly does not like to be disturbed so choose a spot where it will not need transplanting.

Do You Like Cacti?

Do You Like Cacti?

Cacti have perhaps lost a little of the popularity they enjoyed 50 years ago. No longer do they top the best-seller lists, but they still are to be found in millions of homes and they still remain the least understood of all plants.

Cacti are often regarded as plants which actually thrive on neglect. Hardly any other indoor living thing can put up with such poor conditions and yet outlive its owner. And so there are millions cacti in homes throughout the country which are kept as semi-alive, green ornaments which, apart from some increase in size, hardly change their appearance over the years.

Shade Loving Plants

Shade Loving Plants

Shade Loving Plants – Just because shade loving plants thrive where the sun doesn’t shine, doesn’t mean that they can’t bring color into your garden. The shaded areas of your garden can be just as bright and appealing as the sunny ones. These shade-loving perennials turn all those dim areas, from part to full shade, into a delightful oasis that will only increase in beauty year after year.

Hellebore

Hellebores are among the earliest perennials to bloom in the new year, flowering by January or February in the South, and several weeks later in the North. The flowers are not showy, but when they are the only flowers in the garden, they seem beautiful.
