The eryngium also known as sea holly is an ornamental blue thistle and a very popular wedding flower in Scotland as it is in the same thistle family as the national flower of Scotland. As a plant or when cultivated in the garden, it is sun-loving and requires full exposure for the best colour and form. As a cut stalk, its unusual spikey textural flower and bluish purple hue makes it a popular filler in bouquets and centrepieces. It is also often used as a corsage or groom’s boutonniere.
This flower dries very well and with the basic care of a fresh change of water and a snip of the stem daily, it can be kept fresh up till 2 weeks.
Single variety flowers come wrapped in brown paper with a water bag. This ensures sufficient hydration for the flowers so that they remain fresh between the time it is put together and when the recipient receives it.
Here are the number of stalks you will find in each size:
Standard — 10 stalks
Large — 16 stalks
The eryngium is a medium-stemmed to tall-stemmed variety, ideal for dining tables, entrance tables, console tables and bar top centrepieces.
