Armeria maritima 'Bloodstone'


Pot Size: 5.25 Inch Square Pot

  • Flowers like bright pink lollipops
  • Purple foliage provides a colorful contrast
  • Great at the edge of beds, walkways, or containers

Magenta-pink pompon flowers top the attractive compact tufted mounds of purple-tinged, evergreen foliage. Blooms over a long period in spring and early summer. Intersperse with the green-leaved varieties for added season-long foliage interest in rock gardens or alpine troughs.

Uses: Rock Gardens, Edging, Containers, Low Borders
Notable Features: Salt Tolerant, Evergreen
Growth Habit: Mounding

Homeowner Growing Tips: Foliage mounds tend to rot in the center if grown in moist, fertile soils or in heavy clay. Good drainage is essential. Best grown in infertile, dry soils in full sun. Deadhead spent flower stems to encourage additional bloom.
