  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained acidic soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: Febuary to April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A wonderful groundcovering plant, that has the added bonus of producing an abundance of pinkish purple flowers from late winter to mid-spring. These not only look good, but will also provide a vital source of early nectar for bees and other pollinators. A tough little plant, which once established will take drought in its stride.

  • Garden care: During the growing season water regularly, applying a half-strength application of a balanced liquid fertiliser every four weeks. After the plant has flowered trim with shears or secateurs to remove the dead flowers and encourage bushy growth.
