A sunny location in coastal, windswept sites open to the elements has proved that Armeria can thrive just about anywhere in the UK, given a sunny location and a free-draining soil.

Once ready for planting out, space them approx. 6-12″ (15-30cm) apart to give them room to fully grow and not be overcrowded.

*With a little planning you can have perennial plants in flower for several months of the year – almost all year round in milder areas.
