Armeria maritima 'Splendens' (Thrift)

Thumbnail Photo

Armeria is an excellent ground cover plant for areas of full sun. It does well on poor soil and is an excellent choice for rocky areas where it can be stuffed into cracks and exist on very little soil. It is perfect for gravel or maritima garden and for gardens designed as xeriscapes or rock gardens. It can take light foot traffic and makes a neat, decorative edge along a garden path or down garden steps. Armeria maritima is an ideal rock garden plant and one that should always be included if choice is restricted.
