Out of Stock

Pkt 40 Seeds

Product Description

Armeria known as Sea Pink or Sea Thrift has cute dark pink papery round ping-pong ball size flowers atop 6-8” stems that each last on the plant for an easy month. Adorable in small mini vases these are very long lasting cut flowers and super easy to dry for everlasting dried flowers. A neat and tidy small mounding plant for path edging, rock gardens, containers, low water habitat gardens and seaside landscapes. It is native to the coastline so it does best in dry light soil in a sunny location with not too much water and is extremely tolerant of poor, sandy, dry, high salt and windy conditions. A long lived perennial evergreen mound of grass like foliage 6-12" by 12" stays looking nice and neat with very little effort. Many beneficial insects and butterflies appreciate the nectar. As with many natives the seed can be slow and erratic to germinate so be patient and don’t throw the pots out too soon.
