Ballerina Red Sea Thrift (Armeria ‘Ballerina Red’)

Ballerina Red Sea Thrift

Armeria Ballerina Red (False Sea Thrift), Armeria pseudarmeria ‘Ballerina Red’, will show off its abundance of bright red flower clusters from mid through late spring. It will rebloom sporadically throughout the summer months if deadheaded.

Sporting broad evergreen leaves, beautiful ball-shaped flower heads, and 14″ stiff flower stems. Ballerina Red will be a standout in any landscape.

As it ages, this Armeria increases its compactness and uniformity. Ballerina Red overwinters well and once established is heat and salt tolerant.

Ballerina Red will bloom the first year! This sturdy flowering perennial forms a neat grassy-like mound that stays fresh all summer long.

Use in borders, containers, or as a charming groundcover. Dividing should be done in early spring.
