Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

A favourite for use in rockeries and coastal gardens thanks to its inbuilt drought resistance, salt-tolerance and windproof blooms and foliage, we’ve selected this extra large-flowered sea thrift variety for planting in your summer bedding schemes and containers. Armeria 'Ballerina Lilac' is a very tough perennial which will thrive in almost any sunny spot, even in poor soils. This variety stands taller than other sea thrifts, forming neat clumps of grassy foliage. It flowers profusely in mid to late spring with pretty, lilac-pink, ball-like flower clusters, and then continues to flower sporadically throughout the summer and autumn. Regular dead-heading will encourage further blooms. Height and spread: 25cm (10").

Plant Armeria in full sun on well drained soil. Sea Thrift is tolerant of poor sandy soils once established and copes well in coastal areas. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
Deadhead faded flowers to extend the flowering season throughout the summer. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of armeria in spring to maintain their vigour.
