Armeria-Sea Thrift, Sea Pinks

Armeria growth habit forms hammocks/clumps so it is propagated by root division which means digging up the plant in the spring and transplanting the numerous tap roots. This is an evergreen in Southern gardens, semi-evergreen in Northern climates and its habitat is along coastlines so it needs a well drained loamy infertile soil and is drought tolerant. Armeria blooms from late spring to fall and the floral varieties include white, pink, red, and lilac and deadheading will give a second burst of blooms and Armeria grows to a height of 6"-12" in full sun or part shade. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to its blooms.
