Armeria

Thrift thrives on the coastal fringes where there is plenty of salt in the air and ground. This hardy plant is also known as ‘sea pink’, for obvious reasons.

These photos were taken in the Isles of Scilly; this wind-swept Atlantic archipelago is located 25 miles offshore of England’s mainland. Thrift can be found growing wild all around the hundred isles and rocks of Scilly.
