Armeria grows naturally on the cliffs overlooking the sea, hence the name sea thrift. That means it loves lots of light and freely draining soil. Happy little balls of flowers rise above a plant that looks like a mound of grass, but it really is a flowering plant. A cutie for the front of a sunny border. While the wild ones are usually pink, 'Ballerina Red' has a reddish flower. Lovely. Plant may reach 10"/25cm.
Please note: This picture shows what the plant may look like when more mature. At this time our plants may not look like this.
