Armeria maritima Pink Sea Thrift

Thrift flowers vary from white 'alba' through to pinks, lilac and purple colours throughout the spring and summer.

The Thrift plant is a hardy evergreen and resembles a cross between a clump of grass and chives. They can be seen growing along the coast in the UK and due to their pink flowers are often referred to as Sea Pinks.

This is a great little clump forming groundcover plant that requires little in the way of maintenance. Great for rockeries, is drought tolerant and enjoys a sunny position.
