Armeria - Armeria 'Joystick Red'
Armeria 'Joystick Red' is a variety of hardy perennial Drumstick Thrift suitable for growing in a container or well draining open ground in full sun either as a single plant or in swathes. (There is also a white variety).
Originally this easy to grow hybrid of Thrift was developed as a commercial cut flower from deep pink to red.
Plants commonly form a low mound (8ins/20cm high - 12ins/30cm across) of light green evergreen leaves. The flowers are bourne on upright stems (16-20ins/40-50cm) in a red pompom.
