P11. Sea Holly, Eryngium zabelii
Price: $10.50 Size: 6.5 inch pots
Sea holly boasts clumps of uniquely textured flowers that are popular not only in gardens, but as cut flowers too. The flowers are quite long lasting. At some angles, the lovely blueish lavender color of the 4 inch wide flower heads is practically iridescent. It prefers well-drained, almost sandy soil but is easy to care for. As a bonus, it also attracts pollinators like bees and butterflies and is deer resistant.
