Sea Lavender Overview
Limonium is genus containing around 170 accepted species of annuals or deciduous and evergreen perennials or shrubs in the Plumbaginaceae (plumbago or leadwort) family. They have a wide distribution on most continents and a centre of diversity from the Canaries through the mediterranean to Central Asia. These plants are commonly known by the names Statice and Sea Lavenders, amongst others. They thrive in coastal habitats and are tolerant of saline soils. Some species are popular in cultivation for their long-lasting calyces, which are retained on the plant after the flowers fade.
