    Blue Globe Thistle is a fabulous looking plant. Late Summer and early Autumn it produces prickly blue balls that stand well above the foliage. Combines well with ornamental grasses, Achillea, Agastache and Salvia. Also provides a great contrast to clipped silver foliage shrubs like Helichrysum, Santolina and Teucrium.

    Drainage is the key. Our gravel garden provides excellent drainage where the plants reach full size (1.2m). We previously had them in soil with a high clay content where the plants were stunted and lacked good flowering.

    Eryngium agavifolium

    Buy 1 for $13.00 / Buy 5 for $55.00

    Sharply toothed, but still relatively soft, crisp green strap-like foliage provides a wonderful foliage contrast. Often grown just for its foliage. In late Summer and early Autumn green spears appear through the foliage and rise to 1-1.5m with greenish white thimble shaped thistle like flowers. Unique in many ways, Eryngium agavifolium mixes well with ornamental grasses, sedums and agapanthus. Requires good winter drainage.

    Commonly known as "Rattlesnake Master". A fantastic common name. Thin, slightly spiny, glaucous foliage gives rise to silver white thistle like flowers to around 1m in height. Prefers a free draining sunny position. Tolerates dry and gravelly poorer soils. Our boundary garden contains many of these Eryngiums as we love the architectural contrast. Grows well with Rudbeckia, Echinacea, Sedums and Ornamental Grasses. Also makes a wonderful cut flower.

    Buy 1 for $12.00 / Buy 5 for $50.00.

    'Rubinzwerg' has received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. Only the best of the best receive this award. The RHS description of the plant: "Masses of rich mahogany red flowers surrounding a green centre that matures to a dark chocolate brown and opens with a halo of golden anthers". 'Rubinzwerg' is a real delight and inspires us to revisit the Helenium beds several times a day when in flower. 75cm in height, 60cm in width. Heleniums grow in most soils except waterlogged clay, benefit from compost application and are both frost and heat tolerant.

    Helenium Autumnale Moerheim Beauty

    This plant is currently unavailable.

    Helenium 'Morheim Beauty' is the classic Helenium that has been around for a number of years and first attracted us to the suite of Heleniums that are now available. Swept back deep red petals that bleach in the Summer heat to a rusty ochre orange. The addition of organic matter to the soil will encourage growth and larger flower heads. Simply stunning clumping herbaceous perennial 60-90cm tall.
