An amazingly eye-catching color combination

Eryngium Neptune's Gold

Golden leaves contrast nicely with steel blue stems and deep periwinkle blue flowers. The bracts show colors from gold to silver to lavender to blue. A stunning combination for any garden.

We are proud to be representing this new sea holly in partnership with our friends at Plants For Europe in the united Kingdom. The first all-gold leaved Eryngium! Bright golden leaves and bracts contrast greatly with the steel blue stems and flower heads. A lovely, eye-catching color that does not burn. Leaves emerge bright yellow, fade to chartreuse and then age to a lovely gold and green combination. The long lasting, electric blue flowers are surrounded by bracts that are graduated from silver to gold and then soft lavender. Neptune's gold was selected by breeder Neil Alcock in the UK and introduced by Plants for Europe. It makes an excellent container specimen or addition to a combo planter. The plants are totally stable and never revert. Awards: Shortlisted for Plant of the Year Award, RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014
