i recently went to Cornwall and saw on the cliffs some plants growing around some rocks and i liked its simpleness. now i live in Southend so i'm not sure if its possible to grow what i saw but would like some help trying to identify what i saw and whether they would grow good here.

    The pink ones are thrift (armeria) and the yellow is probably tufted vetch. That is definitely vetch, probably tufted. They like sharp drainage but aren't difficult otherwise

    Quick but inaccurate kev. Try kidney vetch. Tufted is one of the blue/purple ones

    But thank you again nutcutlet you was always closer at identifying them than me.

    Anyone know where i can get these as plants now? i done a search and only seem to find seeds. was hoping to make a mini rockface  and plant these with some very low grass or moss on a bonsai tray
