DAILY FLOWER: Sea Lavender 01-13-21

By Karen England, the Edgehill Herb Farmer.

My late husband grew up by the Pacific ocean in Del Mar, California where this plant, Sea Lavender, Limonium perezii, an “everlasting” flower due to its dry papery blooms, was growing everywhere. He insisted we planted it here at Edgehill Herb Farm and it has spread its wings about the property nicely over the years and is blooming today.
