Armeria; Thrift, Sea Pinks:
This is a low growing plant that produces lots and lots of lollipop shaped flower heads – which are beloved by insects. We have used the redder varieties, Bees Ruby and Bloodstone in our designs, but you can get them in a range of colours from pinks to reds to white. They really are trouble free happy little plants…as long as they have well drained soil and sunshine.
So not surprisingly, armeria features in our design called Lollipops and Balls!
