Arenaria (Arenaria Montana) - Establish this evergreen, low-growing, vigorous perennial with Arenaria Montana seeds. Arenaria Montana is a treasured alpine or rock garden plant. It forms a low-growing evergreen cushion of dark green leaves, and it produces many white flowers during springtime. In sandy soils, this will root and spread slowly to form a patch. Great for edging paths, between flagstones, in walls, a ground cover, or trough gardens. Arenaria Montana plants prefer well-drained soil and full sun to partial shade. Divide these ground cover plants in spring or early fall.
Sow Arenaria Montana seeds indoors 4 - 6 weeks before last frost. Transplant seedlings when danger of frost as passed. Arenaria ground cover plants are fairly drought tolerant once established. Sometimes they are used as a lawn substitute.
