Sea thrift is an evergreen perennial native to coastal areas of California with pom-pom flower clusters held on leafless stalks. Normally the spring flowers are pink, but ‘Point Saint George’ has pure white flowers. Discovered on the coastal bluffs of Pt. St. George, an ecologically rich area just north of Crescent City, this beauty stood out among a sea of pink flowers. Forming compact mounds of narrow, dark-green leaves in grass-like tufts 6 inches or so high by 6 to 10 inches wide. A natural along the coast where it can bloom over a long period, sea thrift grows best in lean, well drained soils in full sun. Drought tolerant and not tolerant of heavy soils. Can be used inland in hotter sites with afternoon shade and moderate to occasional summer water.
