Eryngium bourgatii by Sandrine Maugy

Eryngium

From the 'Garden of Roy Lancaster'

"The typical plant is native to the Pyrenees and was a favourite of the late Graham Thomas who considered it a beautiful plant at all times. The selection that bears his name he considered even more engaging. It seeds freely and true, revelling in a sunny site and providing a charming and continuous display through summer into autumn"
