Care & Handling Guide

Eryngiums are also known as sea holly: they grow well in coastal areas and have spiny leaves and a characteristic collar around the flower heads. Their thistle-like flowers are made up of small flowers grouped in a tight cluster. With colors ranging from gray to blue to deep green, Eryngiums are unique flowers.


  1. Trim and Hydrate: Using sharp scissors or clippers snip at least an inch off of each stem, be sure to trim at an angle to encourage maximum rehydration. Place the trimmed stems in cool water right away and give them some time to drink it in.  
  2. Stem Preparation: Be sure to remove any leaves that might fall below the water line in your vase, this will help to keep the water as fresh as possible and make your job easier!  
  3. Wait and Watch: It is a good idea to let any fresh-cut flowers hydrate for several hours or even overnight. This will encourage a sturdier stem and a longer vase life.
  4. Arrange and Maintain: Now is the time to have some fun! Whether you plan to keep it simple by letting the blooms stand alone or are incorporating them into a floral design, just give each stem a fresh snip, remember to cut at any angle! Place the arrangement in cool fresh water and enjoy! It is important to keep the water clean and clear to extend the vase life of any flower. Changing it every day or two is a good idea and while you’re at it, a fresh snip will keep them vibrant and standing tall!
