Armeria maritime 'Bloodstone' (Sea Pinks)

Thumbnail Photo

Bright purplish-pink, ball-shaped flower clusters are produced on thin, leafless stalks held high above the tight mounds of evergreen, grassy green foliage. These little wonder blooms from midspring thru early summer. As its name implies, Sea Pinks are found naturally along coastlines where few other plants can handle the high salt concentration. Inland, this attribute makes them useful for planting along sidewalks or driveways that are salted in winter. They are also good candidates for rock gardens, troughs, or between pavers.
