SOLD OUT Statice (Limonium Sinuatum white) 60 seeds (#1047)

Famous as an everlasting flower, statice or sea lavender is most often grown by flower designers and crafters who treasure its dry, papery blooms. The plant is native to warm Mediterranean regions where it may remain perennial if conditions are sufficiently mild. But, a light frost will spell the end of its plant life.
This fast grower begins the season as a rosette of deeply lobed, hairy, narrow leaves. The plant is easily grown from seed.
As temperatures warm, statice sends up stiff, branched, winged stems topped with clusters of white flowers. The flowers appear from summer into fall and will keep blooming as the mature stems are cut. The dry, colorful calyces retain their form and color long after the entire stem has been cut and dried.
The planting period depends on which area to plants. In Western Europe, it is common to plant from December through to April, whereby specially the December planting generates flowering for early spring, when flower prices usually are higher.
In the Mediterranean area, it is recommended to plant in fall thus benefitting a good winter yield. In countries around the equator, year-round planting is possible.
Sites with full sun and very well-drained, modestly fertile soil are the best for statice. Plant it in masses in cutting gardens for a plentiful harvest of blooms for crafts and arrangements. When mature, cut the stems, bundle and hang them upside down in a cool dry place. This will help them retain their upright form and color. Continued sun exposure will cause the flower colors to eventually fade.
