Eryngium 'Jade Frost' PP#17370 is a fascinating perennial. One of the very first variegated Sea Holly varieties, this little beauty packs a punch when it comes to color, texture and hardiness. The leathery, rounded leaves of this perennial grow best in a hot and sunny location. Well draining soil is best. Water needs are minimal, in fact it does not like too much watering. Once established it is drought tolerant. 'Jade Frost' is tolerant of sea salt and therefore is an excellent choice for seaside gardens.
Florists adore the long lasting, spiked stems of violet-blue flowers. They add an interesting element to any fresh cut flower bouquet. The flower stems are spiky and tower 24-30" tall. It also makes a great dried flower. A great addition to any sunny butterfly garden.
