Picture thanks to Jelitto Seeds

This little plant packs a power of colour.  It forms a  low mounding plthe iant which will cascade over rock walls in time and  in spring it smothers itself with  small lie  flowers, forming a waterfall of colour over walls without being invasive. Its small flowers are very attractive to bees and it only grows to about 10cm high. It makes an excellent container plant.

Sowing advice
Sow spring or autumn.  Best sown where they are to grow, but can be sown in trays or pots. Sow into prepared soil which is fine grained .  Ideal temperature is  18-20°C.  Thin seedlings to 5cm spacing. If sown indoors, surface sow onto moist seed compost. Don’t cover seed as light aids germination. Propagate 18-21°C. Germination takes 14-21 days approx. Transplant seedlings to 8cm pots. Acclimatise and plant out once danger of frost has passed. Autumn sowing will flower the next year.
