Eryngium 'Blue Hobbit' - Is commonly known as Sea Holly. It is a hardy, reliable perennial with spiny violet leaves. It grows to 30cm in height and spreads to 30cm wide, flowering from early June, right through to September. They are a fantastic and popular variety to dry out for flower arrangements and a strong attraction to bees.
Sea Holly features open umbels of prickly steel-blue flowers, which are a favourite for cutting, fresh or dried. This unique dwarf strain is ideal for the front of a sunny border or in mixed containers. The short stems produce metallic-blue sprays that remain attractive for weeks. In time plants will spread to form a small patch. Easily divided in early spring.
