Homeowner Tips
Sea Thrift should be planted in loamy or sandy soils that are well-drained. Mulch with pine boughs or other evergreen branches. Heavier mulches like leaves can increase the moisture around the crown. This can encourages crown or root rots. Thrifts prefer cool temperatures and low humidity. Where summers are hot and humid, it should be grown in partial shade. Propagation is by seed or division.
