house leeks collection
- Position: full sun
- Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil with added grit
- Hardiness: fully hardy
These decorative evergreen groundcovering plants can be used to great effect in troughs, alpine beds, stone walls and even to soften the gaps between paving slabs. In this collection, you will receive 6 different un-named types. They are all quite different, but they all have rosettes of succulent leaves and clusters of star-shaped summer flowers. After each rosette has produced flowers it will die off, but it is soon replaced with a new lateral rosette that will form on a runner.
- Garden care: Cut back spreading species after flowering. Water moderately when actively growing and avoid winter wet.
Please note that the ceramic pot shown in some of the images on this page is not included.
