ARMERIA maritima 'Bloodstone'
Bloodstone Sea Thrift, Sea Pink, Sea Thrift
Bloodstone sea thrift is a short, evergreen perennial that originates from mountain and coastal regions across the Northern Hemisphere. In the United States it grows in the western coastal states where it may be in flower year 'round. In late spring through summer, small dark red globe-like flowers appear atop grass-like foliage.
Grow this tidy perennial in sites with full sun and perfectly drained average soil. It makes a fine addition to rock gardens, along the edge of a border, or in a trough or container garden. It is very prone to root rot and will not tolerate a highly organic or poorly drained soil.
