Eryngium Blue Hobbit

Eryngium Blue Hobbit

Customers living on the coast or in dry locales love the bold color and uniquely shaped flowers of Blue Hobbit Eryngium.

It is a wonderful choice for brightening up rock gardens, seasonal borders or mixed perennial arrangements (both fresh and dried). Blue Hobbit is dependably drought tolerant and highly attractive to butterflies and pollinators.
