Flat Sea Holly is an excellent architectural plant for the dry garden. Blue-tinged stems hold spiky, metallic blue flowers above a rosette of waxy, glaucous foliage. Pollinators adore the unusual flowers!

Dried flowers lend interest to the winter garden and are a boon to the birds.

This plant prefers to grow in poor, sandy soils and will tolerate salt. Staking required if grown in less than full sun or overly fertile soil.
