In this mix

Thrift / Armeria maritima
Thrift or ‘sea-pink’ has a small pom-pom shaped flower head on top of an evergreen leaf structure. As well as being a popular garden
rockery plant, it is commonly found on clifftops, so can cope well in areas with high salt content and thin soils. The evergreen foliage forms cushion like mats, enhancing the winter colour and coverage where it is sown.

Frequency Evergreen, Perennial
Height Up to 15cm
Colour Pink
Flowering period April to July
(some until October)
Soil Chalk, Clay, Sand, Loam
pH Acid – Alkaline
Moisture Well-drained
