|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.
Winged flower stalks emerge from rosettes of lobed leaves. Use dwarf varieties in masses and containers. Taller varieties are good for cutting, but may need staking.
