Limonium Perezii

Limonium perezii

 

An older generation of gardener will remember these plants being called Statice and that is what most of us know them as. Commonly Limonium is also called Sea Lavender or Everlasting, but regardless of name this little plant is a flop proof , dependable little ground cover.

Statice is an evergreen perennial that forms a rosette of large leathery leaves. It grows in the sun in most soils, but prefers the soil to be well drained. It is drought tolerant and water-wise once established but needs regular watering when first planted.

This is a reliable low maintenance plant. You only need to remove the old foliage to keep the plant tidy and looking good.

The Statice plant flowers year-round but has more flowers in spring and summer. It has large clusters of bi-colour blooms on stems ranging from 15-60cm tall. These flowers are purple-blue and white and have a papery feel to them. The flowers last forever and are excellent cut flowers both fresh and dried as they retain their colour. Remove the old flowers to encourage new flowers to develop. Butterflies and bees are attracted to the flowers.

Statice are such foolproof plants that every garden should have some. They make great accent plants, do well in borders, look good in rockeries and grow well in containers.
