Limonium perezii is a species of Limonium known by the common names Perez's sea lavender and Canary Island Sea Lavender. It is also known as simply statice (reflecting the former name of the genus), sea lavender or marsh rosemary (common names for the genus). It is native to the coasts of the Canary Islands but is widely used in gardens throughout the world.

This is a tough perennial herb growing from a woody rhizome. The thick leaves are oval to round in shape and up to about 30 centimeters (12 in) long including the petioles, located in a basal rosette about the stem. The inflorescence is a stiff, branching panicle 15 to 45 centimeters (5.9 to 17.7 in) tall, topped with bushy clusters of flowers. The small flower has lavender sepals and white petals.

Limonium perezii is native to the Canary Islands, but widely cultivated as a garden plant.
