I was joking Barbara , how tall is it ? no ! it couldn,t be sea lavender grows in salty sand , it looks lovely spread across the shore , you can pick bunches and then let it dry .. , a bit like Statice ( Limonium ) actually yours does look more like Statice ...

So was I! lol. I'm hoping that Eileen will use her book...

It's not Statice, though, I don't think. I'm sure it's a native plant. I certainly didn't plant it, and I can't see the leaves, if there are any. It's quite small, only about 6"?

Try Limonium latifolium, Spritz. If it is, the flowers will appear to be 'everlasting' and take ages to open (if at all)
