I saw this really interesting flower today. What is it? I assume it's a perennial. It resembles thistle.

Eryngium
It is actually in the carrot family, of all things

I'll have to check out more about the sea holly - it's stunning! And its that santolina behind it? That's one of my favorite scents.

Eryngium, or sea holly. If you have soil that they like they can be a beautiful intense blue.
