Simply delightful & simple to grow! Salt & wind tolerant our coastal “Sea Thrift” is also perfectly content to grow in CLAYISH & SANDY SOILS,as well as rich garden soil. Needing no Summer water at seaside, do provide some Summer water away from the ocean to keep it thriving. Narrow, evergreen grass-like leaves form neat & tidy tufts to 12” across, forming little mounds over time. Plenty of sweet 1.5” lavender-pink pom-poms appear throughout Spring on short 6”-8” stems leaving attractive spherical seed heads in their wake. Cut these back to the foliage for a second flush of bloom in Summer. Excellent choice for low maintenance edging, rock gardens & containers. Loved by bees & butterflies ! Cute as a cut flower!
