Thrift: Armeria maritima

Armeria is a genus with 80 bushy, cushion-forming, evergreen herbaceous perennials that belong to the Plumbaginaceae. The common thrift grows in the coastal regions of Europe and is often planted in rockeries, flowerbeds, pots and large containers. This grass-like herbaceous perennial with narrow, dark green leaves bears white, pink or purple flower heads on long stems from late spring until summer. It grows best in well-drained, light sandy soil in a sunny position and need plenty of water in dry summers. Make sure they are not waterlogged in winter. Apart from this, it is a very undemanding plant. The flowering period can be prolonged by deadheading very regularly. It is important to remember that it spreads very readily.
