Set B6 - Wild Flowers Series 2 - card information

31. Sea-Pink
(Armeria maritima Willd.)

31. Sea-Pink

On cliffs and rocks, on saltings and salt marshes around Britain, the Sea-pink enlivens the scene with its patches and drifts of pink flowers. The grass-like leaves pack close and form cushions from which the flower stalks spring. The Sea-pink has a long flowering period - April to September, and even when the blooms have lost their colour they still retain their form, often into late Autumn and the beginning of Winter.
