Armeria – Sea Thrift

Armeria - Sea Thrift

These are such small flowers, about 1/2″ or 1cm across. You can see the top of the armeria clump as dark purple blades, at the bottom of the photo. Those are tulip leaves behind the flowers.

These flowers look great in a mini-vase, and will stay nice for a number of days. I haven’t tried drying these flowers – yet.

I also have a clump of this plant with white flowers, but they are just starting to bloom. The clump with white flowers, has green leaf blades, sort-of grass-like.

For me, this plant is in the front of a flower bed, note the deer fence in the foreground. I’ve tried to separate this clump to multiply it, and found it to be a challenge. Either my soil is very hard (good chance) or the clump is so dense, it is hard to shovel into two pieces.
