Cultivar Notes - 'Sea Lavender'
Sea Lavender is one of the best perennials for using as a cut flower, especially for drying. This forms a low mound of large, leathery green leaves, bearing upright branching heads of tiny, pale-blue flowers, giving a misty, cloud-like effect. Plants will produce a number of stems, and the overall effect is billowing and delicate. Very tolerant of hot, dry sites once established. Dislikes being moved or divided. Flowers are attractive to butterflies. To dry, stems should be cut just as the flowers begin to open, and hung upside down in a warm, dark place.
Genus Notes - Limonium
Closely related to annual Statice, German Statice is perennial. Its dense sprays in mid- to late-summer are superb for cutting and drying . Best in well-drained soil with near-neutral pH.
