|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Related species are grown as ornamental plants in gardens, and these may also be called "sea holly", though the majority are not associated with littoral (sea-shore) habitats. Among the best known of these is Eryngium bourgatii (illustrated), a perennial with stunning green, prickly foliage marbled with silver. The flowers, which appear in summer, are cobalt blue, and appear very attractive to bees. The plant is 30 to 60 cm in height. Other commonly grown ornamental species include Eryngium alpinum, E. variifolium, E. tripartitum, E. bromeliifolium, and the biennial E. giganteum.|
El panical blau és una espècie de distribució mediterrània de l’oest, habita els prats montans però al cantàbric pot baixar a nivell de mar.

I've always liked species of Eryngium. I used to grow a few in my garden in the North Island. Very interesting flowers and foliage, but I love those bracts the most.

Ben captades aquestes difícils tonalitats. Un conjunt impactant amb quatre elements. Bona profunditat.
