Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Thriving in light and sandy soils, Limonium gmelinii is a florist's favourite that is ideal for free-draining borders, rock gardens and coastal gardens as well as the cut flower garden. From midsummer to early autumn, airy sprays of tiny lavender-purple flowers form a haze above a basal rosette of large, semi-evergreen leaves. Siberian statice makes an incredibly long-lasting cut flower, either fresh or dried, with the papery petals retaining their colour well. Drought and heat tolerant, this hardy perennial is easy to grow, low maintenance and loved by pollinators. Height and spread: 50cm (20in).

Plant Limonium gmelinii in light, free-draining soil in full sun. Sandy soils are ideal. Cut back faded flower stems to the base after flowering has finished. Protect Siberian statice from winter wet – apply a generous layer of mulch around the crown in autumn.
Feed and water Limonium gmelinii regularly until plants are fully established. To use as a dried flower, cut the stems when the foliage is dry and the flowers are well coloured. Tie statice flowers in small bunches and hang them upside down in a dry, well ventilated place until completely dry.
