Eryngium maritimum, Salt-tolerant Coastal Evergreen Perennial, An unlikely umbellifer, this salt-tolerant coastal wildflower is native to most European coastlines, so best grown in gardens with dry, not to rich, soils, seldom growing more than 50cm tall. Very pretty lilac-blue flowers from Jul to Sept & the veined, jagged leaves are equally attractive, looking almost like they have been 'frosted', it’s globular umbels of tiny flowers are reminiscent of Teasels & are backed by spiny leaf-like bracts that also develop a lovely purplish tinge. Once believed to be a strong aphrodisiac & since nominated the 2002 County flower for Liverpool., Seed Count Approx - 12 avg
