This sea-faring fellow can typically be found by rocky ocean shores, usually up high on a cliff. Nicknamed 'Thrift', Tim is the superhero of flowering plants. Don't be fooled by his delicate appearance - his background living up on mountain sides makes him perfect for anything from wind prone gardens to sky-scraping balconies. Throughout Spring and Summer, Tim blooms bright pink, cup-shaped flowers on top of evergreen tufts of grass. As a perennial, he'll come back for more every year, making him an excellent addition to a low-maintenance urban garden.
A superhero in more ways than one, Tim has been used in medications to treat epilepsy and obesity. He's also been known to work as a sedative. Just don't try to self-medicate; eating him raw from the garden won't help you much.
