Eryngium planum ‘Blue Hobbit’ is a compact cultivar with small, steely blue flowerheads. It’s perfect for growing at the front of a herbaceous border, gravel garden or in a container, and makes a wonderful cut flower, both in fresh and dried arrangements.
How do you take care of a blue Hobbit plant?
Thrives in full sun in dry, sandy, well-drained soils. The sunnier the site, the more intense the blue! Tolerates poor soils. Avoid planting this plant in moist and fertile soils, where it will tend to sprawl and may require support.
