Goniolimon tataricum

German Statice
Plumbaginaceae
Perennials

From North Africa, southern Europe, the Caucasus, and Russia. Dense clumps of dark green, narrowly oval leaves grow from a woody rootstock. In summer, leafless flower stalks rise to 1 1/2 ft., forking repeatedly to form a broad, domed cluster to 1 1/2 ft. wide. Tiny flowers are light purplish to white. The entire inflorescence can be dried for winter arrangements. The plant withstands both cold and heat. Best where summers are hot and dry. Needs partial shade in hottest climates.
