    Comments about High Country Gardens Eryngium planum Blue Glitter:

    It is too soon to tell, planted later in the season. What I received in the Sea Holly was not the same species as the Sea Holly I have currently in my garden. It will be interesting to see the difference this spring/summer

      I just love this plant. I have been trying for about 2 years previous just to order it and both times it was out of stock. I finally got to get 4 plants and I just love them. They are wonderfully "strange" and so pretty. They draw in different insects that seem to enjoy them.
      If you want something unusual in your garden give this plant a try. The color is also very pretty.

        I planted this many years ago and now it has spread to other nooks and crannies of my garden. It is a wonderful color and texture. Whenever it appears in a bouquet that I receive, it makes me smile because I have so much and because the bees love it.

        Comments about High Country Gardens Eryngium planum Blue Glitter:

        This is a good plant for xeriscaping, but of the 3 we bought one year ago only 1 came up this spring. All were seemingly healthy and looked great their first year. I placed them in a back corner in full sun, and was careful to water them well. Disappointing, as all our other HCG plants have thrived.

        Q & A

        USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

        To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

        • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
        • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
