Just a few plants in 9cm pots

Limonium latifolium  has  a large profusion of dainty lavender- blue flowers which are held in panicles  in mid to late summer. Plants will produce a number of stems, and the overall effect is billowing and delicate. The flowers are attractive to butterflies.

The foliage is borne in a low mound and the leaves are leathery. The plant does not like being disturbed, so divide or lift only when really necessary.

It makes an excellent cut flower and can also be used for drying

The plant  likes ordinary soil which is  well drained and slightly on the dry side. It is an easy care plant. Once established the plant is very tolerant of hot dry spots.

Deadhead the flowers to encourage further flower production.

It makes a lovely dried flower. To dry, stems should be cut just as the flowers begin to open, and hung upside down in a warm, dark place.
