About Me Getting Started
Comments about High Country Gardens Eryngium planum Blue Glitter:
I bought 3 planum sea holly plants and put them in a slightly elevated bed which gets full sun for about 1/2 the day. Two of them developed splotchy leaves and after 3 days of rain the third one has as well. I'm guessing excess water is the issue but not sure and don't know that I can save them. I am purchasing 3 more and will give them another go. Am putting together a memorial flower bed with focal colors of orange and greys-so had really hoped to be able to include some sea holly.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Use in my xeric perennial garden in Rio Rancho. Bees and butterflies love this plant. Bloomed the first summer-- beautiful and added texture to my garden and a beautiful blue color.

Planted in mid to late summer, too late for a bloom
from SE Michigan
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
Eryngium Planum Blue Glitter
By Jackie on George
from Wellsville, NY
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.

profuse blooms. dried well
Spectacular show and bee attractor
from Centennial, CO
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.

NIce plant, but...
from Des Moines, IA
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.
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.
