Eryngium-pandanifolium in October

If you have the space for this very large plant – common name Giant Sea Holly – it really is a 5-star architectural presence in the garden at the end of the year. At Great Dixter they grow (and sell) the cultivar ‘Physic Purple’ that originated at the Chelsea Physic Garden.  I photographed it at the Plant Fair beginning of October and again at the Christmas Fair at the end of November and it was still looking superb. Its companions may have died back but it is still standing proud.
