Pink Pokers Statice Seed

Product ID:4663.114663

Easy to use as a fresh or dried cut flower.

Whimsical and wild statice looks to be a thing of fairytales or a sea-dwelling creature. Compared to L. sinuatum types, this statice has a very different look but is also earlier and easier to harvest. Plants have mostly basal leaves, which makes the stems easy to locate for cutting, and there are almost no leaves to strip away. Low-growing plants produced 2–3 flushes of harvestable stems in our trials. Excellent for dried flowers or fresh cuts. Flowers dry beautifully, holding their color well. Early statice. Also commonly known as Russian statice and rat tail statice.

Specs:

  • Plant Height: 20–30"
  • Packet: 100 seeds
  • Avg. 167,400 seeds/oz
