Ep - Er

ERYNGIUM Eryngium is a trendy genus in the last few years and justifiably so, wonderful bold accent plants, taprooted and very drought tolerant. They resent transplanting once established, and seed can be a challenge to germinate, although plants of most species present no problems. If you can't make up your mind which one to grow, do what we do. -- Grow 'em all.

Eryngium yuccafolium

Eryngium yuccafolium

Very different look than most of this genus, leaves are indeed very yucca-like, long, narrow, and strap-like, edged with small, non-lethal, teeth. Leaves rise 2-3 feet, and then in late summer, the flowers come up a couple feet above that, big clusters of greenish-white spheres that all but lack the usual Ernygium bracts. Will grow just about anywhere, but inclined to be floppy unless grown lean and in full sun. Zone 3
