Limonium perezii is a
stalwart garden plant. Statice blooms will dry with quite a lot of
color on them. The actual blossoms of Sea Lavender are white, it is
the purple bracts that hold on for so long. Limonium perezii will
look its best if the oldest looking blossoms are removed every month or
so. The flowers can be used in dry arrangements and hold for a long
time. Statice plants are hardy into the mid-20's. Statice will
tolerate a variety of conditions. Limonium perezii will produce some
seedlings in a soggy part of the yard. I try to cut out all of the
old leaves at least once each year. Otherwise snails tend to take up
residence in the clutter and can damage the base of the plants.
Limonium perezii will grow in full sun and will still bloom better than
most in a dry lightly shaded location.
