Description

Family Apiaceae
Originating from Mexico

 Delicate and feathery looking, yet fearsomely spiny and architectural, this stunning Sea Holly has a unique character amongst Mediterranean-style spiky plants. Its slender leaves are a slightly glossy grey/green colour and have numerous needle-like spines on each side of a wider, flat midrib, and are arranged in a rosette, giving a slightly explosive yet organised look to the plant. Growing to form a clump of many rosettes, it will produce many tall flower spikes, making a cloud of silver/grey small thistle-like blooms loved by all pollinators. Easy to grow in full sun in well-drained poor soil.

Height and spread after 2 – 5 years 1m – 50cm.
