Thrift Growing and Maintenance Tips

Sea Thrift is one of the easiest perennials to grow.  It thrives in full sun and loamy or sandy soils that are well-drained, especially in the winter. Wet soil for extended periods encourages root rot. Thrifts prefer cool temperatures and low humidity. Where summers are hot and humid, it should be grown in part shade.
