German Statice is a carefree, perennial shrub and wildflower for dry locations with full sun in the garden. It's also known as sea lavender or marsh rosemary. From July, it forms its many, small, first pink and then white faded blossoms, which are arranged lushly in racemose corymbs and lure many useful insects with their nectar.
As wildflowers, you can find it in steppes, dry grassland, as well as on stony slopes in North Africa and Central, East, and South Europe, as well as Southern Russia. Statice, therefore, also rather prefers a dry, permeable, unnutritious, and rather sandy soil in the garden. Like this, it fits very well into the stone garden, the prairie and steppe garden as well as flower beds of near-natural gardens. As a pot plant, it also cuts a fine figure.
The inflorescences of German Statice are lesser-known from shrub beds than from fresh flower bouquets and dried flower arrangements. Indeed, it's an excellent cut and dried flower. In case you'd like to harvest the inflorescences for drying, this should only happen after the blossoms have blossomed fully. Tied up upside down on a dry, cool, and dark spot, you'll receive the best results.
