Description

Height x Spread: 5cm x 15cm

Ever so pretty and delicate, 'Bevan's Variety' is an ankle-high gem.  For most of the year this thrift appears fairly unassuming, forming a compact but gently spreading carpet of needle-like evergreen foliage.  But come the spring lots of soft pink flowers appear, jostling with each other to catch the sun.

Hardy and versatile, its preference for a free draining soil with few nutrients and full sun make it an attractive candidate for a gravel or rock garden, but it works well in a planter too combined with short ornamental grasses such as STIPA tenuissima and sun loving GERANIUM.  Bees and other pollinators love its nectar-rich flowers. 

Available as either 1 x 1/2 ltr pot for £3.50  OR our "Other" option which is  3  x 1/2 ltr pots for £9.00
