Eight-petalled flowers are produced above the dark green foliage on this evergreen sub-shrub in the early to midsummer. The flowers are followed by attractive white seed-heads that persist into winter. A delightful alpine that is relatively easy to grow if you give it very good drainage. 4 inches in height; 36 inch spread.

For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Plant the seed in containers in a cold frame as soon as your seed order arrives. Grow in sharply-drained sandy soil in full sun to semi-shade. Will tolerate temperatures to -15ºC (5ºF) if protected from excessive winter wet.
