Armeria White Sea Thrift Armeria Maritima Alba is a compact, mounding, perennial. Armeria is also commonly called Sea Pink or Common Thrift, and this evergreen perennial can be grown from Armeria seeds that germinate approximately in 21 days. White Sea Thrift produces globular, pure-white flowers over attractive, dark-green, grass-like foliage. The global clusters of tiny, fragrant, white flowers start to appear in mid-spring and bloom continues for few weeks until mid-summer.
White Sea Thrift is a wonderful, evergreen ground cover that is suitable for small areas, and Armeria is widely used for rock gardens, edging, border fronts, wall pockets, and containers. Armeria Maritima Alba likes to grow in full sun preferring dry, gritty, sandy soil, and good drainage is essential for growing Sea Pink.
