THRIFT

Family PLUMBAGINACEAE
Armeria maritima
Perennial

Also known as the Sea Pink, the genus has its various species in Europe, western Asia, North Africa and North America.

The species most used in gardens is Armeria maritima, the Common Thrift, a native of the coastal regions of North America and Europe. The tightly clustered heads of small flowers vary from white to pale pink in the native state but in rich pink and reddish purple tones in varieties of garden origin. “Bees Ruby” is a hybrid of uncertain origin with stems fully a foot high and bearing large heads of ruby-red flowers; it is, in every way, a giant form of Thrift and most useful for planting in the front of the border.

Armeria latifolia, six to twelve inches, is a crimson-flowered species from Portugal.

In cultivation Armerias demand full sun and ample drainage, it being wise, except in the most porous soils, to incorporate plenty of coarse grit into the soil around the roots.

Propagate by seed or division of the roots in early spring.

The flowering season extends from late May until early July.

Thrift – Armeria, Sea-Pink
Hardy Perennial.
Six to eighteen inches.
Flowers in various shades of rose and pink, also white. May to October.

The wild sea-pink, common on the British coasts, grows freely in any fairly light garden soil. It should have good drainage and a full exposure to the sun; over-hanging trees or encroaching neighbours will weaken and ultimately destroy it.
Its compact little mounds of grassy foliage make one of the best of live edgings to beds and borders, which with care in dividing and replanting may be kept in condition for many years and increased indefinitely.
Plant good pieces of root any time between October and March; if before the winter, firm the roots carefully in after the last thaw in spring.
Besides Armeria maritima, the native variety and its white form alba, there are several others; Armeria cephalotes, easily raised from seed as a hardy perennial, a larger version of maritima, with round pink flower-heads on eighteen inch stalks; Armeria Laucheana, rosy-crimson flowers; and Armeria bracteata rubra, a tall-growing deep rose.
These are all fine, but perhaps they miss the proper charm of the race, as found in maritima in its wild state, the low growth of dark green, covered in June with a sort of spray or cloud of delicate rose.
When it is used for edgings the dead flower-heads should be clipped off after the main display is over in July, to leave the green border trim and compact until another year.
