Armeria maritima ssp. elongata





This RARE & lovely pink-flowering variety of "Sea Thrift" can grow to an impressive 20" tall & wide, with flower spikes over 6" tall. Foliage forms a grass-like mound that remains evergreen in frost-free areas. Flowers are produced late Spring to Summer & are the BESTfor attracting bees & butterflies! An effortless plant for a seaside garden, where damp coastal breezes provide all the water this beauty will ever need. Inland, occasional water is recommended - but it’s quite drought tolerant once established. A wonderful choice for meadows, forests & areas plagued by salt or clay; the only stipulation is the need for a bright, sunny spot!
