While the double flowered form of this low growing perennial is relatively easy to find, this seed is from the true single-flowered species, and is not common at all. With deep roots, this mat-forming rock garden plant will produce a succession of flowers over a long period throughout much of the summer. 8 inch height/spread.
Sow seed in containers in a coldframe in autumn or spring. Seed may also be sown where it is to grow in the crevices of a rock wall, or in the rock garden. Grow on in any almost soil with good drainage. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
