1x seed packet containing 10+ Eryngium cymosum BSWJ 10267 seeds.
This is a very special plant, originally collected by Bleddyn and Sue Wyn Jones from Volcan Pico de Orizaba in Mexico at high altitude. It has been planted out here in Devon with no problems, and has finally set seed for the first time. It appears to be fully hardy here and has not been bothered by our heavy and winter-waterlogged clay soil.
For any warm, sunny position in the garden. Eryngium cymosum BSWJ 10267 makes tight rosettes of serrated leaves, each with a variegated stripe running down its length. Flower spikes are not as brightly coloured as in some other Eryngium species, but are nonetheless interesting and are generally covered in bees.
Seeds are easy germinators, and will usually germinate in spring or autumn depending on the time of sowing. Sow into slightly gritty seed compost and very lightly cover.
