Limonium perezii (Sea Lavender)

Sea Lavender, Statice, Perez's Sea Lavender, Seafoam Statice, Marsh Rosemary


Native to the Canary Islands, Limonium perezii (Sea Lavender) is a tough evergreen perennial or rounded subshrub sporting large clusters, 8 in. wide (20 cm), of tiny flowers with intense purple calyces and white corollas. They are borne on stiff branching stems, well above the foliage of long-stalked, oval to diamond-shaped, deep green leaves. Sea Lavender blooms intermittently for months and nearly year-round in frost free coastal climates. Their dry, papery petals retain their color well, making them an excellent choice for dried arrangements. Ideal for seaside gardens or decorative containers.

  • Grows up to 2-3 ft. tall and wide (60-90 cm).
  • Easy to grow, Sea Lavender performs best in full sun, in well-drained soils with occasional summer watering. Tolerates salt spray, wind, drought and heat.
  • No serious insect or disease problems. Watch for crown root, root rot, rust, scale and nematodes.
  • A welcomed addition to Mediterranean gardens, coastal gardens or rock gardens.
  • For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
