Armeria maritima ‘Nifty Thrifty’


Variegated Thrift

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.070.400


This British selection of Thrift is a cute treasure for the rock garden or for edging. Plants form a low grassy mound of green and white-striped leaves, bearing short stems of bright pink pompon flowers in late spring, later changing to papery seed heads. Excellent in trough gardens. Trim off faded flowers to encourage repeat blooming, if desired.
