Description

One of the most intensely coloured of all sea hollies which is very Good for Cutting –  the large flowers are fantastic used fresh in arrangements, but they also dry very well, if cut before the blooms are fully open. This plant is also very drought tolerant, but will do best in well-drained soil in a sunny spot.

Care Tips

Choose a planting spot with fairly dry, well-drained soil that is poor to moderately fertile. Full sun is essential as is protection from winter wet. The seedheads are a valuable feature so leave a few to use over winter. Avoid root disturbance.
