Eryngium planum

The powdery blue small thistle like flowers of Eryngium planum are a welcome sight in August, rising among the flaxen plumes of stipa tenuifolia/tenuissima. It likes an open cultivated sunny site though not too dry. This is the first year I have tried it, so lets hope it survives the winter and self seeds.
