(Common Thrift) Armeria pseudarmeria 'Ballerina Lilac' is a true spring joy! Loads of 1 inch lilac pink 'balls' sway on top of the dark green foliage. The broad evergreen foliage of 'Ballerina Lilac' is thicker than many other varieties. The strong stems hold the large blooms tall, and do not flop over. Armeria likes to be grown in full sun to part shade and has average water needs. 'Ballerina Lilac' is great for borders, rock gardens, and mass planting. Armeria is an easy to grow variety and handles salty areas quite well. We are listing 'Ballerina Lilac' as zone 6, but it has done well in zone 5b with reliable snow cover.

Homeowner Tips
Armeria is easy to grow in average, moist but well-drained soil and partial to full sun. It is tolerant of heat and salt once established. Light to moderate fertilizer is beneficial. This plant is said to be reliably hardy to zone 6, with some overwintering success in zone 5. In our zone 5b trials with reliable snow cover, all plants overwintered successfully.
