Why is my Armeria Alliacea (Sea Thrift-Pink) going brown?

Great border plant! Have been in the ground over a year and are approx. 8" in height and 14" in width. Most are nice and thick and green, but a few are becoming brown in the center and laying over. Water maybe twice a week when hot. Any reasons why the brown is turning up?

First of all, they do not need watering, they grow on extremely dry cliff tops at the sea side and are designed to stand drought.

That has answered a question that I was going to ask. When I was a kid in Rutland we had huge cushions of the stuff growing between the crazy paving, the cats loved to sleep on idea why though.
