Eryngium Miss Wilmots Ghost (Eryngium giganteum (Miss Willmott's ghost))

This plant is such an amazing colour taken 3 years to flower from seed, bees love it.

beautiful, is your soil towards the alkali? I'd like to grow many of your plants especially the campanula, you know which one, but I've lost a few c. takesimana such as elizabeth possibly because my soil is too acid?? or maybe neglect:-(

Is more alkaline Bornagain can't grow rhododendron or camelia, is quite good soil though as was allotment land, mostly clay, but also had some topsoil brought in that is quite sandy in certain areas of garden, which is what the erygium is growing in, so can grow lots of different plants.
