Eryngium longirameum - BSWJ10351

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
A rare small species we collected from a boggy area on the over-grazed high altitude plateau of Sierra de los Cuchumatanes, also home to some of the colourful Mayan Indians at 3200m in 2004. Where it only attained 10cm in height (taller in gardens) in the starved conditions, with rosettes of elongated paddle-shaped dark green leaves. With few branched inflorescences of blue flowers surrounded by large silver-white spiny bracts. Easily grown in a sunny to lightly shaded spot in drained soil that does not dry out.
