More about Armeria maritima 'Nifty Thrifty':

Watering twice, a few minutes apart, helps water soak in deep. Never overwater, or you may cause root problems. Mulches help reduce water evaporation in hot or dry weather.

Variegated Thrift Growing and Maintenance Tips:

When possible, water in the morning to avoid promoting diseases from night watering. Remove dead, faded, or diseased foliage as needed. Remove some foliage during transplanting to reduce stress on new roots.
