Plant details

Related to the popular thrift, Armeria juniperifolia makes a neat plant with tightly packed rosettes made up of narrow, needle-like leaves radiating outwards to make starry shapes. In late spring, the mounds bear clusters of deep rosy-pink flowers which sit among the foliage - they have virtually no stem. Since the plants are so tiny they are easily swamped by more vigorous species, and are best grown in a raised bed or alpine sink. Also known as A. caespitosa. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
