What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Sea Holly
Planting notes. Native to a wide variety of climates and growing conditions, sea holly is pretty tolerant and able to grow in a wide variety of environments. Provide ample sun and their foliage and flower hues will deepen and become more vibrant. Sea holly prefers light, well-drained soil — some species are partial to sandy soils, while others prefer soil that maintains a certain amount of moisture. The one characteristic that all sea hollies share is a single deep taproot. This makes them more resistant to drought but much more difficult to transplant, so transplanting is not recommended.Shown here: Eryngium bourgatii, zones 5 to 9More:See more great design flowers and plants, grasses and trees
