These really are beautiful. I’ve only seen our native species in real life, but they have one thing in common with these: they’re bee magnets, too!
You may know this already, but this cultivar has a fun story attached to it (https://laidbackgardener.blog/2020/02/19/miss-willmotts-ghost/)
I love Eryngiums and your first photo is simply stunning! The second flower is a lovely blue. It’s good to see the bees have found your garden! 😃
Thank you. I think the bees found the eryngiums as soon as the flowers open properly, I was getting ahead of myself. 🤣
oh wow…all those photos are stunning, especially the first Eryngium. Exquisite! It’s like an exploding mystical cosmic sphere. Trippy!
Thank you so much!
