Armeria General Information:

Armeria pseudarmeria are extremely tolerant of both heat and salt while remaining fresh and evergreen. These False Sea Thrifts have broader leaves, stiffer stems and lush ball shaped flowers in abundance all summer long. Often reblooms when deadheaded.

Armeria Plant Care:

Shear off all old flowers when blooming is done for attractive little clumps all year long. 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.
