Eryngium giganteum ‘Miss Wilmott's Ghost'

Miss Willmott was an Eryngium loving lady (1858-1934) who had the questionably antisocial habit of secretly dropping the seeds of this plant as she wandered around other people's gardens. 36 -48" high - this beautiful thistle-like plant with sturdy branches produces blue-green 2.5" flower heads on a silver ruff, all of which fades to ivory as summer comes on. Reseeds!
