Flowering season.

From Late Spring TO Late Summer

Little starry flowers appear from late Spring to late Summer

 

Plant container plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant container plants in a sunny position. These plants are very suited to the alpine garden, and for container growing. In their natural habitat they have a very dry Winter, and plants will do well if that is replicated - in free-draining soil or compost, and given very little water in Winter.
