Also known as Lady’s Cushion and Sea Pink, Thrift is a cute little specimen with delicate globes of flowers towering over soft grassy foliage on long, sturdy stems. Native to the Mediterranean, Thrift is a salt tolerant slow grower that benefits from frequent deadheading.  Allow it to die back naturally each winter and divide in the Spring or Fall.
