Plant of the Month – Eryngium Giganteum
The Walled Garden at Castle Kennedy Gardens is about to burst into bloom, as our weather is at last starting to improve, and our Salvia and Herbaceous borders are about to show the full splendour of their colours.
One of the plants looking particularly good at the moment is Eryngium giganteum, this variety is sometimes mistaken for the Sea Holly and it attracts both bumble bees and honey bees. The flowers of this plant are often used for button holes for weddings as a representation of the Scottish thistle.
