An unmistakable genus. The petals are white, and it has papery sepals that are purple, pale lavender, or white. The leaves are pinnately lobed, which allows this species to be distinguished from the otherwise similar Canarian Sea Lavender (Limonium perezii, not shown) which has entire, roundish basal leaves. Often cultivated, occasionally escaping, or introduced (as in Garland Ranch). Photo #3 by CJH.
