Cotton lily called thrift or sea pink, Armeria is a compact low growing plant that resembles a tuft of grass. It resembles a tuft of grass until mid-Spring. It's covered with 1/2 inch, highly attractive globe-like flowers that butterflies can't resist! This tought native of the San Juan Islands is perfect for the hottest, sunniest part of you garden and rarely needs water. Remove the spent blossoms as soon as flowering is over - and you'll get a second and sometimes even a third set of those lovely blooms in a season!" - Ciscoe
