Armeria ‘Joystick Red’

Drumstick Thrift

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.070.340

This is a hybrid selection of Thrift, developed as a commercial cut flower. Plants form a low mound of evergreen leaves, bearing upright stems of rose to red pompon flowers beginning in late spring. Stems are strong and good for cutting. Removing faded flowers will keep plants blooming for longer. Flowers can also be picked when just opened and hung indoors to dry for winter arrangements. Great in borders or in pots. Clumps are easily divided in the fall or early spring.
