Sea Holly is also known as Eryngium

You know that old saying about plants — “thrives on neglect”? It must have been created for sea holly. It reminds me of a thistle in my moms strawberry patch…it does best in poor soil with little water and baked conditions! But I like it because it has striking flowers, an interesting prickly texture too. I have added them to my arrangements in flower shows. They are different. I include them on the 4th of July as fireworks in my bouquets. Let your imagination run wild. 🙂

  1. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic info being shared freely out there.
