Armeria does do well where I live, but that flower wasn't armeria (I was a
couple hours from home anyway). A single flower, maybe 2 inches across,
about 24" high with the foliage less than 12" tall. 
I'll browse around, maybe I'll find it somewhere.

 Armeria comes to mind. It would likely do very well where you live.
