More about Armeria maritima 'Splendens':

The species name attests to its origin as a maritime coastal plant native to Europe where it was a valuable ornamental plant for knot garden. Early cultivars of the species result from the crossing with A. setacea and the larger A. alliacea.

Thrift Growing and Maintenance Tips:

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune old flower heads to encourage more blossoms. Do not prune in fall. Remove dead foliage in spring.
