Sea Thrift/Armeria Maritima
Sea Thrift is a popular garden flower, known by several common names, including thrift, sea thrift, and sea pink.<br />
<br />
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.<br />

The British threepence coin issued between 1937 and 1952 had a design of thrift on the reverse.<br />
