Description

One of the most beautiful of all foliage plants, this rare sea-holly, as its name suggests, is to be found growing on sandy seashores. Thick, sharply-pointed, metallic-grey leaves on strong stems terminate in spiny, metallic blue-grey flowers. Fabulous and completely perennial in a well-drained border or rockery.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
