Eryngium or Echinops

Does anyone grow flat sea holly or blue globe thistle for cutting? It seems they would both make great cut flowers - especially Blue Glitter Eryngium. I am working on my grow list for 2010, and would like to know if either are worth adding to my list. Thanks!

RE: Eryngium or Echinops

ekgrows, eryngium is certainly worth growing as a cut. I am not familiar with the Blue Glitter but I cant imagine that it wouldnt be wonderful. It is a super addition to mixed bouquets and the color goes with anything, literally! I started mine from seed in spring and did not get harvestable stems until the following summer so keep that in mind, unless Blue Glitter says it will deliver the first season. I dont grow echinops so I cant chime in here but others will I am sure. All best. Kat
