Ornamental Features

Red-leaved Sea Thrift has masses of beautiful balls of rose flowers at the ends of the stems from mid spring to early summer, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its attractive tiny grassy leaves emerge burgundy in spring, turning dark green in colour with curious deep purple undersides the rest of the year.

Landscape Attributes

Red-leaved Sea Thrift is a dense herbaceous evergreen perennial with a mounded form. It brings an extremely fine and delicate texture to the garden composition and should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should be cut back in late fall in preparation for winter. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Red-leaved Sea Thrift is recommended for the following landscape applications;

Rock/Alpine Gardens
Border Edging
General Garden Use
Groundcover
Container Planting
