Erinacea anthyllis

Erinaceae anthyllis grows in mountainous regions of Europe and North Africa. A hugging evergreen with sharp spines to protect from grazing animals. The blue tinged purple flowers cover the plant at this time of the year. Look out for it tumbling over the alpine wall where it has an open deep rooting substrate. This drained, dry medium prevents waterlogging around the base of the plant resulting in longevity.
