In focus: Eryngium

The European species tend to be deciduous, but have more spectacular early to mid-summer flowers, often with a metallic blue or silver sheen. They are also extremely hardy, and the perennials are long-lived. However, these do not perform well in very dry conditions either, though they prefer full sun to intensify the colour of stem and flower.

Eryngium alpinum ‘Superbum’ has amethyst-blue flowers cupped by three strokeable rows of feathery bracts which surround a 2in-long thimble. The upper leaves also acquire the same amethyst-blue tint. This plant will colour up in semi-shade and is often sold as a cut flower.

If winter presence is required, the white-veined, rounded leaves of Eryngium variifolium will look stunning against bare soil. Each small, bluish thimble is surrounded by long, slender bracts which splay outwards, adding to the prickly appearance. This plant barely reaches 2ft high. E. bourgatii has variegated foliage and almost circular thimbles in soft blue, but the plants keep only one or two leaves during winter.

There are also two excellent large-flowered, 19th-century hybrids. The strongest blue stems and flowers of any eryngium belong to the hybrid of E. x oliverianum, a deliberate cross between E. planum and E. giganteum. The finely toothed leaves and large steely flowers of E. x zabelii were produced by crossing E. alpinum and E. bourgatii.

The star, though, is the biennial Eryngium giganteum – often known as Miss Willmott’s ghost, because it always appeared two years after the celebrated gardener Ellen Willmott (1869-1934) had surreptitiously sprinkled seeds in gardens she visited.

This plant, found high in the Caucasus, has a thick, greenish-silver stem that emerges from a rosette of rounded green leaves. The central flower has a huge thimble, often 4in long, surrounded by a ring of jagged bracts, and a higher, radiating ring of flowers on splaying stems. The whole plant, which reaches 3ft in height, takes on a matt, steely glint in sun-baked summers, but it will not develop its silver flowers if it self-seeds in shade.

Growing tips

Eryngiums enjoy full sun, but they need moisture, too. Gravel gardens provide ideal conditions.

These taprooted plants have more root than top when young and resent disturbance – so buy young plants.

When growing from seed, always sprinkle the fresh seed straight on to the ground – never into a pot. Germination usually takes place the following spring.

Hybrids and named cultivars can be divided in spring or propagated from seed. Root cuttings can be taken only from the European species, not the evergreen rosettes.

The American rosette- forming species are best grown as specimen plants. Many will reappear late in the year following a hard winter.

The hardier European species fit well into mixed planting schemes.

It’s Felt Flower Week again! This is our fourth time sharing felt flower patterns all week long that culminate in a stunning DIY felt flower wedding bouquet and boutonnieres. But this week is extra special because instead of cutting all these flowers by hand, we’re letting our Cricut Maker do all the hard work for us! In our shop, we’ve now released all our past felt flower patterns as Cricut .SVG cut files, including today’s brand new design! Stop by the shop to purchase your blue thistle pattern for only $1.99, or buy all 22 felt flower patterns for only $34!

In talking about handmade flowers – I’m singing the praises of felt. Unlike paper, felt flowers are thick, sturdy and can withstand all that your wedding day could possibly throw at them. Paper can rip and crumple in a flash – but not felt! There is something so old-school crafty about felt… and I just love it. So without further ado, here’s this weeks second felt flower design – the beautiful blue thistle.

SUPPLIES:

  • Cricut Maker
  • Cricut Fabric Mat
  • Cricut Rotary Blade
  • Low-Heat Hot Glue Gun
  • Hot Glue Stick Roll
  • Floral Wire
  • Wire Cutters
  • Scissors
  • Our blue thistle felt flower .SVG cut file!

If you don’t have a Cricut we are sharing a free printable .PDF pattern at the end of the post that you can cut out by hand.

FELT:

For the blue thistle I used Marine for the bulk of the flower and Olive for one of the leaves. Find this exact felt and many more colors at Benzie Design.

  • For Each Flower You’ll Need: 4″ x 12″ rectangle of blue felt and 3″ x 3″ square of green felt

Upload

Upload our custom .SVG cut file into Design Space and add it to your canvas. Then customize as you’d like and prepare to cut.

  • Choose: Felt, Wool Fabric as your cut setting and use the rotary blade.

You can drag to resize this file larger but if you try to make it bigger, some of the smaller details won’t cut properly.

Let Your Maker Work Its Magic

Add the felt to the Cricut Fabric Mat, click to load the mat and press Go! Continue following the cutting mat prompts from Design Space then carefully remove the excess felt and all petals…

Scrape

I know this sounds weird but if you push/scrape the thistle fronds off the cutting mat in one swipe, instead of pulling them off – they’ll actually come off the mat perfectly! If you peel or pull them some might pull apart or might loose finer details.

Assembly

Start with the largest felt rectangle, add hot glue and a sturdy floral wire to the tallest side. Then wrap-roll, adding hot glue along the way, until the end.

Then match up the smaller rectangle to the end part of your wrapped flower and do the same thing. Now the center of your flower is complete!

Add Leaves

Add the three leaves, largest first, then medium, then small. Glue as you go and fluff to see your felt thistle appear before your eyes!

Have A Few Questions?

  • Can I cut the felt flowers with my Cricut Explore? Yes, but it will take a little bit more effort. Visit this page to learn about what materials your Cricut Explore can cut.
  • How do I clean my fabric mat? To clean light scraps and fuzz, a lint roller works great. Try not to touch your mat as the oils in our skin can damage it. Use your tweezers to remove large strings and pieces.
  • What if I don’t have a Cricut? You can print out our free .PDF pattern at the end of the post and cut the flowers out by hand, like we used to have to do before the Maker!

As with all our DIY tutorials, if you create one of our projects please send us a picture – We Love Seeing Your Creativity! If you use Instagram or Twitter please use the hashtag #SomethingTurquoiseDIY and it will show up on our Get Social page. Happy Crafting!

Thistle-like Flowers for the Garden

To view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a web browser that supports HTML5 video

Butterflies and finches love them, but most gardeners spend hours removing prickly thistles from the garden. But there are a few thistle-like plants you may actually want to add to your garden.

You’ll enjoy the long blooming 2” round blue flowers of globe thistle (Echinops ritro) in the garden or a bouquet. The flowers remain blue even after drying. This salt tolerant, pollinator-friendly plant was popular during the Victorian era.

The steely blue flowers and drought tolerance of sea hollies (Eryngium) make them a welcome addition to the summer garden. Grow in full sun and provide adequate drainage for greatest success.

The reseeding biennial, Miss Wilmott’s Ghost (Eryngium giganteum ‘Miss Wilmott’s Ghost’) was named for an eccentric, rather prickly English gardener. She secretly dropped seeds of this ghostly white prickly plant in her neighbor’s yard that appeared after her death. It’s the pale blue cones and wide gray bracts that give it a ghostly glow.

A bit more information: The Scotch thistle (Onopordium acanthium) is the symbol of Scotland. It provides a unique architectural feature in the garden and landscape. The winged stems are covered with fine hairs, giving the plant a blue-green appearance. Legend has it the Scotch thistle caused attacking Vikings to scream in pain when moving in for a sneak attack on the Scotts. It does reseed readily, so remove the seed heads to keep it in check. Avoid planting this if it is considered invasive in your area.

We would also like to recognize the following individuals for their patient efforts in reviewing photos for accurate plant identification and providing assistance in locating plants:

Steve Priebe, now teaching at MCC
Kirti Mathura, University of Arizona Cooperative Extension
Judy Mielke, Landscape Architect
Angelica Elliott, Kristen Kindl, and Jaime Toledano, Desert Botanical Garden
Scott Frische and John Sills, Phoenix Zoo
Jeff Payne and Becky Noth, Boyce Thompson Arboretum
Lauren Belcher, Sonoran Desert Museum
Tohono Chul Botanical Gardens

A shout out to Halperin Creative, our web development team. It’s been great to work with web folks who are also fellow water advocates and plant people.

The first sentence of our publication was inspired by text from Growing Desert Plants from Windowsill to Garden by Theodore B. Hodoba, with permission from the author and the publisher, Red Crane Books.
