A STAR IS BORN

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Garden Trends -

English hor­ti­cul­tur­ist Ellen Will­mott so loved Eryn­gium gi­gan­teum, with its star-shaped fo­liage and flower cones, she al­legedly car­ried seeds to se­cretly scat­ter in gar­dens she vis­ited. Known as Miss Will­mott’s ghost or sea holly, this short-lived herba­ceous peren­nial adds ar­chi­tec­tural in­trigue to gar­dens. Drought tol­er­ant, it grows to 1m and its flow­ers go from pale green to blue as they ma­ture. Grow in situ from seed as it’s hard to trans­plant.
