A genus that includes our native sea pink or thrift, often seen on coastal rocks. They make mats of bright green grassy foliage, with lots of pink or white button flowers, usually on short stems.
Armeria alliacea is somewhat taller than the British native sea pink, but has similar tufts of grass-like leaves, and clusters of pink flowers. Sometimes it is known as the plantain pink.
