Eryngium paniculatum - BSWJ14367

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
From seed we collected on a very pleasant day's travelling from the picturesque town of Soata with its outlandish churches and down into a fiery hot valley before emerging back up to El Cocuy a cool and pleasant area in the northern Andes, Colombia. Where we found this species growing at 3,000m, with long narrow spiny basal leaves forming tidy rosettes with mostly a single upright scape with the upper half branched and bearing orbicular silver-green heads with white stamen. These were mixed with Puya, grasses, ferns and umpteen scruffy shrubs. Easily grown in good light, possibly not in a very hot position due to its altitudinal provenance, in a drained gritty soil with some moisture retention, avoid over-feeding. Not tried for hardiness.
