The symbol of permanence and consistency is the meaning of the flower called Limonium sinuatum. It grows well, has high pest and disease resistance and remains fresh for a long time with a variety of colours.

The leaves are simple, from 1–30 cm long and 0.5–10 cm broad; most of the leaves are produced in a dense basal rosette, with the flowering stems bearing only small brown scale-leaves. The flowers are produced on a branched panicle or corymb, the individual flowers are small (4–10 mm long) with a five-lobed calyx and corolla, and five stamens; the flower colour is pink or violet to purple in most species, white or yellow in a few. The fruit is a small capsule containing a single seed, partly enclosed by the persistent calyx.
