Refreshing blue blooms throughout the summer!
The thistle-like, 3–4 cm flowers of this fantastic sea holly make unique fresh-cut and dried arrangements. The compact habit also works beautifully for the front of a sunny border or a mixed container, where it'll bring in the butterflies and beneficial pollinators. It's easy-care with a tolerance of heat, deer, drought and poor soils that are dry or high in salts. Over time, it will spread beautifully and can easily be divided in early spring.
