What is Eryngium?

A genus of the Apiaceae family. Eryngium is famous for it’s thistle shaped flower and is often used in Scottish wedding flowers. Eryngium flowers range from silver green to cobalt blue through to deep purple.

Many people think Echinops, (otherwise known as the Globe Thistle), is a variety of Eryngium, but although very similar, in fact it is a genus of the Asteraceae family.

In the wholesale flower markets, Eryngium is sold in wraps of between 10, 25 and 75 stems and is available in stem lengths of 50 – 80cm tall. It is available year round and works really well in all types of arrangements, from bouquets, table arrangements etc.

You can buy wholesale eryngium on our Web-Shop.

Top tips on care:

To get the best from your wholesale cut Eryngium / sea holly please read the care instructions below carefully:

  • Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle with a sharp knife.
  • Fill sterilised buckets with luke warm water and add flower food.
  • Place the Eryngium in the buckets.
  • Leave over night to condition before using in a cool, dark environment.

Never leave cut flowers in direct sun light, near a radiator, in a draft or near fruit. (The gas used to ripen fruit will harm most flowers). Keep the eryngium in a cool place and always keep out of the way of children.
