Thrift is a wild flower that is mostly found in coastal areas, but is now cultivated  for gardens and rockeries.  Research shows that there are no hazards to the plant as such, but it has great properties of taking up heavy metals and other pollutants from the soil, so do not feed if you suspect that your Thrift plant is growing on contaminated soil. 

The flowers of Thrift are mainly pink, but there are white and lilac varieties.
