Introduced to my garden a few years ago, this Eryngium happily self-seeds itself about. In its first year here, it went mad multiplying. So lots of friends were given freebies. But at this stage, I no longer fight with nature and let it do its thing. I love the blue stems. And here, it's got a backdrop of Sambucus 'Black Lace' which I think makes a lovely contrast.

Gorgeous with the dark foliage of the Sambucus.

That's a lovely combination Jas. I also tend to let it go its own way too! Only problem is that they tend to fall over rather easily!
