Limonium gerberi

Limonium gerberi

Common name sea lavender
Family plumbaginaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z2)
Flowers light blue (late summer)
Size 2'

Cultural notes ordinary garden soil
From seed I grew this from commercial seed, but have never managed to grow new plants from seed collected in my garden.

A light blue cousin of statice, with similar airy habit and utility as a cutflower and for drying. Good for August blue, when most of the colors in the garden are in the yellow-red range.

Limonium gerberi

Autumn color shines through in November, after the flowers have faded.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
