A very classy low growing little alpine or rock garden plant. Fast and easy to grow.
It forms a low evergreen cushion of dark green leaves, bearing loads of rather large white flowers during the spring months. In sandy soils, this will root and spread slowly to form a patch.
Great for edging paths, between flagstones, in walls or trough gardens.
Requires a well-drained sunny site. Easily divided in spring or early fall. Drought tolerant, once established, but needs adequate moisture during the dry periods in spring and summer..
