Limonium sinuatum

Annual Statice, Sea Lavender, Sea Pink

Dried, annual Statice is prized in flower arrangements and wreaths because flowers keep their color. In the garden, the long-blooming, small, papery flowers cluster in apricot, rose-blue, white, purple and yellow over waves of large leaves. Also known as Sea Lavender, this Mediterranean native likes coastal climates and is somewhat drought-tolerant. It flowers best with cooler temperatures, but can be grown nearly everywhere. Do not over-water. Watch for rot in humid areas. Cut flowers to encourage more blooms. For drying, cut flowers after they develop full color.
