Hardiness Hardy evergreen alpine perennial (RHS Hardiness H5)
Flowers May to August
Height 10 - 15cm
Spread 30cm
Conditions  Full sun to part shade and poor well drained sandy soils

Sow the seeds on the surface of a tray of seed compost, keep at 20 C and germination takes 2-4 weeks.  If there is no germination, move the tray toa fridge for 4-6 weeks and then back into the warmth for germination.  This helps to break seed dormancy.  Or sow the seeds in autumn, leave them in a cold frame over winter, and the seeds start to germinate in the spring.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle and out into the garden after the last frost.

Grow Plants are evergreen and do not need cutting back.  They can be tidied up after flowering.  Mature plants can be divided in autumn and basal cuttings taken in early summer.
