Without question, the highly structural Eryngium eburneum is one of the most impressive members of the genus. The 3' wide rosette is composed of spiny-edged shiny green foliage. Beginning in early spring, the massive flower spikes emerge to eventually tower about the rosette at 6-8' tall by mid-June. Each light green spike is home to hundreds of light green ball-like flowers, each held rigidly at angles to the main stem. For cut flower arrangers looking for something truly special, you can't afford to be without this plant! This giant form was shared by Bob Popham, who wild-collected the seed in Argentina.
