Armeria welwitschii

Armeria welwitschii
An unusually big, almost shrubby thrift from Portugal - exactly like the common native seaside plant but scaled up in every part, with tough sea-green 3in leaves and bright pink flower heads on wiry stems (please note - the flower colour in this photo is not pale, it's over-exposed. This is one of those plants whose flower colour is so saturated that it tends to wash out when photographed.) Easy in any sunny well-drained situation.
1L pots ~ £5
