Description :

A great favourite!

Frankenia thymifolia or Sea Heath is a native to the coastal dunes and salt marshes of southern Spain and Algeria. It is a carpet-forming subshrub with foliage like heather or thyme Thymus vulgaris: narrow, pointed, grey-green leaves.

Such great qualities!

- 1) clean and tidy evergreen foliage all year round, which turns scarlet as the temperatures drop;

- 2) adorable soft pink summer flowers;

- 3) great adaptability to tough growing conditions, such as poor, dry soil or a salty environment.

In the rock garden, we use Frankenia thymifolia as a charming, small ground cover to decorate the side of a wall, paving or as a companion plant around the base of a bonsai or dwarf conifer. Grows well in troughs.

Grow in the sun in poor, dry soil, which is mainly sand. Hardiness: - 6°C / -10°C

What's in the name? The Frankeniaceae with its sole genus Frankenia, was named in honour of the Swedish botanist John Frankenius (1590-1661), professor of botany at the prestigious University of Uppsala, who published Speculum Botanium, the first flora of Sweden in 1638.
