THE ERYNGIUM, A PRICKLY FLORAL TREASURE

The Eryngium is famous for its thistle-like shaped flower and it is often used in modern floral arrangements. Its flowers range from cobalt blue to a deep purple colour. With the exception of Eryngium Alpinum White Star – the flowers on this variety are nearly white.

ORIGIN OF THE ERYNGIUM

Back in the days the roots of the Eryngium were served to patients to cure indigestion and ease stomach complaints. It 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.

 

SHAPES AND SIZES OF THE PRICKLY FLOWER

The colourful foliage and flowers are fantastic in floral arrangements, both fresh and dried. The most commonly grown varieties of Eryngium have coloured foliage in the shades silver, green, blue, purple and white. The flowers are cone-shaped and surrounded by a wispy crown of bracts. We especially love the eye-popping shade purple.
