Plant Features

Nifty Thrifty Armeria Plants are grown as much for its green and cream striped foliage as its bright pink globe-shaped flowers. Plants bloom tirelessly in spring atop the tidy mounds of foliage. Sea pinks are easy to grow, tough evergreen plants that thrive in well-drained, rather poor soil; avoid fertilizing. The grow well in rock gardens, rooftop gardens, seaside gardens (as they are saltwater tolerant), containers, and other spots that receive full sun. Deadheading will encourage a rebloom. Butterflies and bees are attracted to Armeria while deer and rabbits tend to avoid them.
