The delicate blossoms of Limonium latifolium are like a soft purple haze. When the flower heads dry the purple flowers either fall off or close up very tightly. Dried Sea Lavender flowers make a wonderful filler for wreaths or other dried flower arrangements. To dry pick when purple starts to fade and put in a tall dry vase or hang upside down in bunches. Be sure to artfully arrange the flowers while fresh. After they dry, it is almost impossible to separate them.
Sea Lavender makes a great addition to our Crafter’s Herb Garden Six Pack.
