Eryngium is a genus of flowering plants in the family Apiaceae. The genus has a cosmopolitan distribution, with the center of diversity in South America. Common names include eryngo and amethyst sea holly (though the genus is not related to the true hollies, Ilex).
We did the very British thing on our visit to the United Kingdom in July 2016, we went to a flower show. Okay it was not the Chelsea Flower Show but the next best thing, the Hampton Court Flower Show.
Went out early this morning to buy anniversary flowers for my wife. 37 years today. The new ones are on the left, and the Valentine's Day flowers from the above pic are on the right. Still going strong.
