This is a very showy, compact perennial that blooms in April, May and June. It has stiff, grass-like leaves and stunning pink flowers. This perennial does not like good soil, preferring instead infertile, dry soil and full sun. Works great in rock gardens. The Armeria grows 6-12 inches tall and wide. When the flowers are done blooming, they dry on the plant rather then rot. A very slow spreader and is salt tolerant. Zones 3-8.
