Armeria ‘Pretty Petite’ is a low maintenance and easy to grow plant that is sure to delight with its stunning flower heads. The tight, tufted mound of ornamental, grass-like foliage is adorned with long flowering masses of globe-shaped soft pink flowers. ‘Pretty Petite’ is very dry tolerant once established and will reward with soft pink flowers throughout the spring period.
Grows well in full sun in most soil types given good drainage. Low watering requirements withstanding some dryness but should be watered regularly in extended periods of heat. Pruning generally not required however pruning off spent flower heads will encourage further flushes. An application of slow release fertiliser is recommended in late spring.
