Eryngium agavifolium

Agave-leaved sea holly

A handsome evergreen perennial from Argentina forming a rosette of sharply toothed, sword-shaped leaves. 

It really does resemble an Agave although it will tolerate quite a lot of moisture and paradoxically, drought. 

Small, green thimble-like flower-heads appear on branched stems in late summer. These turn dark brown through the autumn and give shape and texture through the winter. 

Very exotic when planted with Euphorbias and excellent for dry and xeriscape gardens.
