Limonium sinuatum (The Forever Flower)

Statice

Half-hardy Annual

Best known as a dried flower, this colourful half-hardy annual produces long lasting panicles of funnel shaped flowers that top the upright, winged stems from summer to autumn. Grow Statice flowers in large drifts that will attract bees and butterflies to their vibrant blooms. Limonium is easy to grow and even copes well on poor, sandy soils - making it particularly useful for growing in challenging coastal positions. Height: 75cm (30”). Spread: 30cm (12”).

Ideal For:
cottage gardens, cut flower garden

Pot up Statice plants using free-draining compost, and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside. Once they are well grown, acclimatise Limonium plants to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days before planting outdoors on light, sandy, well drained soil in full sun. Improve heavy soil conditions by adding coarse grit or sharp sand prior to planting.
Feed and water regularly until Statice plants are fully established. To use as a dried flower, cut the stems when the foliage is dry and the flowers are well coloured. Tie Statice flowers in small bunches and hang them upside down in a dry, well ventilated place until completely dry.
