Tiny Flowers

Some greenhouse shots of seedlings I've got growing for the organic cut flower biz. Above: black hollyhocks, which are the only hollyhocks I've found (so far) that will last in a vase. Below: Eragrostis "Blue Eros", an ornamental grass that should be good as a filler for bouquets. The eragrostis are in soil blocks, a method of seeding I'm trying out this year.

Above, a type of sage popular with cut flower growers called "Blue Bedder"; below: Echinops, or globe thistle, which is a beautiful steel-blue.
Below: Eryngium "Blue Glitter". OK, not everything I'm growing is blue, it just happened that way in this entry.
