Limonium latifolium

Sea Lavender

No cutting garden would be complete without statice. Dried flower arrangements require it. This popular group of flowers is as useful in the vase as it is in the garden. The annual varieties come in a rainbow of colors while the perennials are usually lavender, blue, or white. Besides making a good cut flower, statice is an easy and showy garden plant, useful in perennial and annual borders as well as containers. They enjoy full sun in northern zones but need some shade in the South. Annual statice is purchased in cell packs in the spring. Perennial varieties are available in containers throughout the growing season. Both types are easy from seed.
