‘Splendens’ Sea Thrift


‘Splendens’ Sea Thrift

Armeria maritima 8–10" tall. Also known as False Sea Pink.

Bright carmine-rose ball-shaped flowers bloom all spring on long lanky leafless stalks held above tight mounds of silvery evergreen grassy foliage. Makes a tidy clump in the rock garden or container, but is also great planted en masse as a groundcover.

Tolerates hot dry rocky soils and grows beautifully along the coastline or highway where few other garden plants can tolerate the high salt concentrations. Shear faded flowerheads for attractive little clumps of foliage throughout the season. Resents being moved—choose a spot near the front of your garden and leave it there.

Prefers full sun. Requires well-drained soil. Plant 8–12" apart. Light loose winter mulch recommended. Species native to mountains and coastal regions of the northern hemisphere. Z3. (2" plug stock)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. Surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. Store plants in their packaging in a cool (35–40°) location until you are ready to plant. If it’s going to be awhile, you can pot up your perennials.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors before danger of frost has passed. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting.
