Statice (Limonium Sinuatum Purple Attraction) - Commonly known as Statice, this annual features dense sprays of small, papery blooms on stiff stems. The plants establish easily from Statice seeds, and once they are blooming, they put on a lovely show that both the gardener and the butterflies will enjoy. Purple Statice is a very popular cut flower for both fresh and dried uses.
Purple Limonium flowers prefer to be grown in full sun locations and in well-drained soils. These plants do not tolerate soggy conditions, and they do not like to be disturbed once they are established. Statice plants are fairly drought tolerant.
How To Grow Statice From Seed: Sow Statice seeds indoors 6 - 8 weeks before frost season ends. Press the Statice flower seeds into the soil and lightly sprinkle with peat moss. The seeds must be kept moist but not wet until germination occurs. Or, you can directly sow purple Statice seeds into prepared seed beds after all danger of frost has passed. Sow the flower seeds in groups of 3 - 4 spaced 16 - 20 inches apart. Thin to the strongest Statice seedling.
