We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
Armeria 'Bevan's' looks the classic alpine plant with its neat hummocks of spiny green leaves studded in Spring with masses of pink pom pom flowers but it's very easy to grow. Here it is planted in a window box but it would be just as happy growing at the edge of a path or border or in a pot, just as long as it's not overshadowed by other plants.
