Description

Height x Spread: 10cm x 40cm 

A little gem of a groundcover for those shadier areas of the garden.  It forms spreading mats of finely cut evergreen foliage, studded with dainty white flowers for months on end.

A natural addition to a woodland scheme, its preference for partial shade and trailing habit make it ideal for a hanging basket or raised bed on a shady side of the house.  Great too for planting beneath shrubs and larger perennials to extend the season of interest in a garden.  It prefers a humus-rich damp soil, which does not dry out too much, especially in summer.
