Statice Suworowii Rats Tail

← Part of Flowers, Quick Start Flowering

A perennial with long thin green leaves topped by several branches covered in small mauve pink flowers. When in bloom, the flowers completely cover the stems giving a fluffy pink appearance. Leaves are borne below the flowering branches and are typical Statice form. A great way to cover up tree trunks or unsightly fences or sheds.

Easy to grow, preferring a well drained soil or a standard approved potting mix. Through the warmer months mulch around the plant’s root base to reduce water stress. Removing spent flowers will prolong bloom period and encourage more flowers.
