Sea lavender is an attractive plant of salt marshes and muddy saline pools. It has oval, erect leaves arranged at the woody plant base. The flower clusters are found only on upper branches of the strong, upright stems. The colour of the flower varies from blue or purple to lilac. The rich lavender colour gives this plant its name - it is not related to true lavenders. The flowers are everlasting when dried and used in flower arrangments.
