Limonium sinuatum Qis ‘Apricot’ / Statice or Sea Lavender / Seeds

Limonium ‘Apricot’ has attractive clouds of tiny flowers in mid to late summer, typically July to September.  The flowers sit on sturdy stalks 70-90cm high.  They make good border and container plants, and long-lived cut and dried flowers.

Limonium grows best in sun and well-drained soil.

Pack of approx 100 seeds.  These plants are mostly grown as an annual in the UK, sown in autumn to spring and planted out in late spring, after all risk of frost has passed.  Plants can be kept in a heated greenhouse or conservatory over winter and kept as a perennial. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Tender annual / herbaceous perennial (RHS Hardiness H2)
Flowers July to September
Height 70 - 90cm
Spread 20 - 25cm
Conditions  Sun and well drained soils
Sow Sow in spring in a tray of moist seed compost.  Cover very lightly with compost or vermiculite and keep at 18-24°C. Seeds germinate in 1-2 weeks. Transplant seedlings to pots when they are big enough to handle and then out into the garden after the last frost.  Seeds can be sown directly into cultivated soil in late spring, when all risk of frost has passed.  These plants can be kept as perennials if protected in the winter.
Grow Plant out in well drained soils.  Plants produce one set of long-lived flower stalks, so no need to deadhead these plants. For dried flowers, cut when the flowers are dry and in full colour, hang upside down in dry well ventilated room until flowers have dried out completely.  In the garden, remove plants after flowering in the autumn, or cut back and protect from winter frost to keep as a short-lived perennial.
