Early May Vignettes And Blooms – Thrift and Salvia

Note: Thanks to Tony Tomeo for commenting with the correct ID of this plant.

This patch of Thrift (Armeria pseudarmeria ‘Ballerina Lilac’) Matthiola incana (stock) was planted last fall possibly last fall. I’m no longer sure. It has provided a cheerful spot of color in the southern border near peonies and iris since mid-March. Now it is starting to play well with recently opened Salvia greggii ‘Furman’s Red’ (Autumn Sage).

      Thanks for setting me straight Tony. I looked up ameria (thrift) and I do indeed see the difference. It’s funny, I kept thinking of it as stock, but figure out where I got it. Thinking maybe I threw out some seeds last year? Don’t know. Anyway, thanks again.

    That last photo of the red sage is gorgeous. Such a rich velvety colour. I don‘t think I have grown either thrift or stock, so wouldn‘t know the difference. Lovely flowers anyway! 😃
