Sea Holly has unique spiny, thistle-like blue flowers. It is a perennial and dies down in the winter. Its spiny leaves remind me of holly. The bracts and upper stems develop a steel blue gray color in the later part of their growing season. If dried in darkness, this blue will remain and offers a very interesting texture and rare natural blue color. I have found this plant difficult to grow and flower. This year I am hoping for the best.
