Sea Thrift/Armeria Maritima
Sea Thrift is a popular garden flower, known by several common names, including thrift, sea thrift, and sea pink.
The plant can be found in the wild in coastal areas across the Northern Hemisphere, especially in Europe, but also occurs in parts of South America. It is a common sight in British marshes. It can grow in dry, sandy, saline conditions such as those at beaches and salt marshes.
The British threepence coin issued between 1937 and 1952 had a design of thrift on the reverse.
