Sustainable Outdoor Plant
Like in many sectors, also in the planty world sustainability is a big issue. Outdoor plants have a special function to attract pollinators to your garden. And this limonium has a special role to play here. It owes its name to the salt crystals that cover its leaves and shine in the sun. The many little flowers and salt crystals attract lots of butterflies and other pollinators. The cultivation has a low energy impact and contributes to the sustainable and environmentally friendly character of Salt Lake®. Sustainability is no longer a trend but a requirement for a better world. These plants are our suggestions for a colorful yet environmentally friendly garden in 2021!
May to October
The special period to enjoy this outdoor plant is from May to October, when Salt Lake flowers with violet-blue combs with white mini flowers in between and reaches a height of about 70 cm. It's is a continuously flowering perennial that develops new flowers until autumn. Salt Lake is a heat-tolerant limonium, and it can even stand a mild winter when somewhat protected.
