Famously found on coastal clifftops during the summer, Armeria’s flowers are a bright purple-pink that forms in a tiny, delicate cluster on top of upright stems that sit above clumps of rich green foliage. A tough and drought-tolerant sun-lover, it will thrive in a seaside location and will be a beautiful addition to the garden. As it fades, it forms papery seed heads.
Plant care: Remove spent flowerheads after they have faded.
