Flower for the Day Arctic Thrift - Greenland 10-21

I took a number of Greenland Flower  images on my trip. I have been working on identification for several weeks.
Friends have helped and I am down to four which I have not been able to identify. For the next few weeks as my gardens wind down we will have some interesting arctic flowers from Greenland.

This is Arctic thrift - Armeria scabra ssp.labradorica (H.S.). Also known as sea thrift, sea pinkand Paarmarsuaq (Greenlandic). Thrift is circumpolar.
This is a striking perennial which I have had in my rock garden in the heartland for years. Who couldn't love little pink balls made up of little pink flowers.
