These seemed so colorful and prevalent around Yachats and Cape Perpetua last weekend, we had almost assumed they were non-native.   That turned out not to be the case.  Sometimes just called “Thrift” and also “Sea Pink”, this plant, found on rocky bluffs along the ocean shore, is also cultivated in lawns and gardens across the country.
