Originating from Oregon and California USA
One of the most compact and densely growing of all ground-covering plants, making a carpet of pink flowers with yellow centres. Technically evergreen, the new leaves are produced in spring – mid grey green, and are quickly obscured by the profusion of daisy-like flowers that appear in a succession that lasts for most of the summer. This is an extremely valuable plant in coastal areas where it is happy in maritime exposure, on poor soil and dry conditions. It’s a great companion for spikey and Mediterranean looking species, as it’s soft colour and shape offsets their stronger and more architectural forms. Attractive to pollinating insects.
Grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Will tolerate poor dry soil once established.
Mature height and spread after 1 – 2 years 40cm x 40cm
