Answers to which flower is known as the sea pink

Thrifts, also known as sea pinks, are excellent for the rock or wall garden. The derivation of the genus name is supposedly Celtic, a fact not too surprising, as the plants are found naturally along the maritime shores of Europe, in addition to the Pacific Northwest and Newfoundland.

Description of thrift: Low, basal rosettes of grasslike, evergreen leaves form carpets. Plants bloom in the spring with tightly packed globes of pink flowers, often sending up a few pink flowers all summer long. Thrift ease of care: Easy.

How to grow thrift: They are very easy to grow as long as the soil is well drained with a location in full sun. If the soil is too fertile or too moist, the plants will begin to rot in the center. Older plants frequently do.

Propagating thrift: By division in early spring or by seed.

Uses for thrift: Thrifts can be used to carpet a sandy bank or a seaside garden and do well in terracotta pots in a cool greenhouse.

Thrift related varieties: 'Vindictive' bears deep pink flowers on 6-inch stems; 'Launcheana' has flowers of deep rose; and 'Alba' exhibits white flowers. 'Rubrifolia' has maroon foliage and bright rose-pink flowers. 'Bee's Ruby' is a floriferous hybrid with large flowers on tall stems good for cutting.

Scientific name for thrift: Armeria maritima
