Eryngium giganteum - Miss Willmott's Ghost

Eryngium giganteum is a striking plant with greenish-white cones of flowers surrounded by prickly, silver bracts.

Miss Willmott's Ghost is named after the nineteenth century gardener, Miss Ellen Willmott, who liked to secretly scatter these seeds in other people's gardens.

Eryngium giganteum is terrific with ornamental grasses. For a study in contrasting textures, try it with Stipa tenuissima or Lychnis coronaria.

Eryngium attracts bees, butterflies and beneficial insects. Biennial or short-lived perennial. Also known as Sea Holly. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 5-8.
