Statice flowers

Statice flowersStatice is also known as Sea Lavender. The greenhouse and frame varieties succeed best in sandy loam and peat, and may be increased by cuttings placed under a bell-glass or in a warm pit.

The hardy herbaceous kinds of the Statice are very suitable for the front of flower borders, and may be freely increased by seeds or division. The annuals, if sown in March, will produce flowers in July. Statices require a good amount of water, but thorough drainage must be ensured. If the flowers are dried they will keep their colour for a considerable time.

The height of the Statice differs from one to 1.5 feet.
