Maybe they are not the first flowers you think of, but the Eryngium is actually quite beautiful, especially combined in a bouquet. The robust exterior of the Eryngium gives the impression that it is a very durable cut flower.
A field of these star-shaped flowers is called a sea of flowers. Bees love these bright-blue flowers, and they also attract beneficial insects like lady bugs and butterflies.

Tip: The Eryngium also makes a good dried flower!
A LILLTE ERYNGIUM HISTORY LESSON
The roots of the Eryngium served to cure indigestion and stomach complaints and was also used to boost the libido of ageing men. The name of the Eryngium is derived from the Greek word eruggarein, which means eructate, probably because of its cure for indigestion.
HOW TO INCORPORATE THE ERYGIUM IN YOUR BOUQUET
Combine the Eryngium with white Avalanche Roses, white Freesia, white Gypsophila, green button Chrysanthemums, green Bupleurum, white Daisy Aster, blue Gentiana and blue Delphinium for a rustic and dainty bouquet. Another idea is to combine the Eryngium with Helianthus, blue Hydrangeas, white Chamomile Daisies and some foliage for a stunning arrangement.
Or what do you think of the Eryngium wreath? We think this is a really cool and creative idea to make with the Eryngium. You can do this easily with one colour, but also multiple sorts and colours of the Eryngium together in a wreath will look really nice.
