I've watched these plants become more and more blue over the last few weeks.
Birna may be able to advise, but they remind me of the Eryngium family

Sorry Fons, only just found your reply.
Thanks - do you know if your ones have since changed colour?
Mine started a similar green, but the stalks and much of the flowers are now quite blue - unusual in the plant kingdom
