Armeria General Information:

Armeria are happiest in full sun, and adapt well to dry, infertile soils. Consistently evergreen in southern gardens; semi-evergreen in the north. Flowers in late spring are colorful and easy to grow. Excellent for the front of border.

Armeria Plant Care:

Shear off all old flowers when blooming is done for attractive little clumps all year long. Any winter kill can be teased out in spring if needed. Does best in poor dry soil. Can be divided in spring by splitting clump with a spade. However, it will be slow to recover and these plants usually prefer to be left undisturbed. May benefit from loose winter mulch for protection. Fertilizer is usually not necessary.
