Armeria juniperifolia

Sea Thrift, Sea Pink

The grasslike leaves of these summer-blooming perennials form spreading tufts of foliage. The sturdy flowering stems end in ball-shaped clusters of tiny flowers. Good in rock gardens, edging and borders. Start by seed or division in well-drained soil. They rot in wet or rich soils. Remove old flowers to prolong bloom. Protect from afternoon sun in warmer climates. Fertilize once a year.

Tight, small mounds of evergreen foliage make this good for rock gardens, containers, or as a small-scale ground cover. Especially fussy about drainage. Mulch with fine gravel to prevent basal stem rot, especially in summer.
