Planting new plants

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Where winter hardy, it may be grown in borders or along foundations. Forms an interesting ground cover. Use in pots, containers and hanging baskets. Container plants make excellent houseplants for bright, sun-filtered areas. Green stems are valued by florists for adding to flower arrangements.

 

Propagation by seed

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Propagation is usually by seed. Prefers infertile, shallow, sandy soils. Seeds can be sown directly into the growing position.
