Eryngium Jade Frost now starting to flower .


Eryngium Jade Frost now starting to flower .

I think this seems to be a very good plant. The basal leaves are very attractive and it seems to be flowering well too. In case you haven't seen it, the pic before this one shows it's lovely variegated rosette of leaves when I bought it;-)

Have you had yours long Michaella, or is it new this year like mine? :-)

Thanks Terra, I did wonder when I bought it if it would flower as well as non variegated varieties, so I'm very pleased:-)

Hi Pump, I got this from Cotswold Garden Flowers. Bob Brown was at a plant fair at Consall Hall Gardens, (fantastic place which you would know had you looked at my Consall Hall blog) and I fell for the leaves, always liked eryngiums:-)

I most certainly look out for this one, its a beauty with those fantastic silvery mauve flower heads;0))

Very nice colour indeed! My eryngiums didnt flower in their first year but this year they are showing plenty of blooms and very happy with them. Will look out for this one to add to the collection :-)

Sticki, I don't think the NGS would pass my garden even with this wonderful attraction lol:-)

Thanks Carole, I'm very pleased with it, stood up well to weather too:-)

Thanks Wildrose, Willi and Katrina. I did put the basal leaf pic on when I bought it, but I thought it would be interesting to show it again with the pic of it flowering:-)

This is very blue now Paul, a lovely colour. I may try some silver ghost seeds as this looks very happy here. Eryngerons weren't keen on my old garden:-)
