Sea Holly - Vibrant silver blue foliage with metallic blue seedpods that sport radiant spiny bracts. Excellent in cutflowers & dried arrangements. Cut before they fully open as these will continue to open in the drying process. Hanging them upside down to dry ensures weaker stems do not flop over. Great conversation piece for a dinner bouquet or garden focal point.Long grown in seaside gardens for its salt tolerance. Deer resistant.   Cupids Dart - Cupids dart blooms in its first year. It has attractive gray green foliage with paper like purple/blue blooms that make superb dried flowers with colour that lasts for ages. Cupids Dart is drought tolerant once established.   Lychnis - This perennial forms dense clumps of silver-white  foliage and multi-branched, gray green stems and produces masses of deep to moderate pink blooms for much of the summer.They are very drought tolerant, and are known to be deer resistant.
