ERYNGIUM 'BLUE HOBBIT'
This superb new variety has a quite amazing dwarf and compact stature. It produces diminutive, prostrate basal rosettes from which emerge silver-blue stems that form themselves into a large, globular flower-head containing hundreds of metallic-blue flowers. A bone hardy and valuable introduction to gardens.
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.
