Armeria maritima

Description

This low-growing, hardy plant features shiny, dark, narrow green leaves that form tufted clumps. Pink flowers appear in clusters on short stalks in midspring. Plants will often flower sporadically, again, in the autumn. Foliage typically remains throughout the winter months, turning dark green to purple. This plant tolerates salt and shade, making it an excellent choice for green roofs that receive ocean spray. Native to the Pacific Northwest of North America, it makes a great accent plant on any green roof.

Sometimes also available with a white flower.

Large quantities may require custom growing. Please contact office for lead times.
