SILVER SEA HOLLY Eryngium giganteum
A new twist on the stunning Blue Sea Holly (which we also offer), this stunning variety has silvery star-like flowers and foliage. These flowers are precious both fresh and dried! Plants are tolerant of dry conditions, and are easy to grow.
Height: 40-60 cm
Bloom time: Summer
Hardiness zones: 4-8
Seeds per pack: 10
Germination: Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Germination can be erratic, between 5 and 90 days after the warming period.
