Description

Until last year I avoided growing limonium (used to be called Stachys) in my garden. Too much maiden-aunt, summer-pub-fireplace for me. How wrong could I have been. These flowers for months solidly, particularly if you keep picking them regularly and of course, they’re the most sustainable things to have to decorate your house through the winter — the stylish everlasting brigade. I love the colour and airiness of this apricot form.

Care Tips

Avoid overwatering. Keep cutting for the vase to prolong blooming.
