Red leaved Sea Thrif

  • Low growing, purplish-red grass like foliage
  • Pink puff ball flowers in spring
  • Tough perennial plant
  • Narrow 4" stems
  • Intense bronze color in fall
  • Great for grouping
This tough minded perennial has a soft side with rosy-pink, tuft-like flowers held aloft individually on narrow, 4" stems in April and May and purplish-red, grass-like foliage that adds color to the landscape after the flowers are gone. An even more intense bronze foliage hue adds color to the fall garden on this plant that is perfect for grouping in sunny, well-drained soils.
