Eryngium venustum is a rarely offered species, collected many years ago in the Mexican mountains (coll #50-18) by our friends at the former Yucca Do Nursery. Eryngium venustum has been very well-behaved in our sunny rock garden for over 20 years. This small growing, but architecturally stunning, drought-loving eryngium is armed to the "teeth" with silver spines on the sides of each waxy green leaf, and a double row of spines down the top...heck, it probably has spines on the roots! The 18" flower stalks top the clumps...great in the anti-social part of your garden. What a great passive-aggressive gift for the boss who is so deserving.
