When this Variegated Sea Holly (much easier to remember than Eryngium 'Jade Frost') first arrived in the nursery, it had a beautiful pink tinge to the white margins of the leaves. As the weather has warmed, the margins have become a pure creamy white that stands out against the matte green centers. The basal leaves form rosettes about six inches tall and 12" - 18" wide, while the deep blue flowers can rise up to two feet. This specimen is well suited to rock gardens, xeriscapes, and those dry, out-of-the way parts of sunny gardens that are hard to irrigate. If given too much water or too little sun, sea hollies may sprawl or get root rot, so once established, water sparingly. The thistle-like flowers are excellent cut flowers and dry beautifully if cut just as the flowers fully open and are hung in a cool dry place.
