Those familiar with Sea Lavender as a vegetable might be surprised to learn that they can also buy this plant in a florist’s shop. Sea Lavender is not only tasty when fried gently with butter and scallion, the flowers of the plant are also magnificent to look at.
Variants like the limonium sinuatum tend to do better in a vase. These flowers are often sold under the name statice and are usually blue and sometimes there are yellow, lilac, pink and bicolour types. You also have beautifully branching types with almost foggy-like branches, full of small flowers in grey, blue or lilac tints.
