Bergenia Cordifolia

Bergenia (Bergenia Cordifolia) - Growing Bergenia seeds is a great way to start this ground cover! Bergenia plants are tough perennials that form a low, laterally spreading, herbaceous ground cover. The ground cover spreads by producing new plants from short underground stems. Bergenia is a type of Saxifraga which forms neat mounds of leathery, dark green foliage that grows just 6 inches high. The foliage has great year around appeal. The flowers are produced on strong stems, 12 - 18 inches high. On top of each stem is a graceful, nodding cluster of carmine red blooms. The blooms start in late winter and last through part of spring. Bergenia Cordifolia is attractive and very eye-catching!

Bergenia flowering groundcover plants have thick, leathery, shiny, evergreen leaves that are not only large, they are colored a very deep shade of green and are often used in floral arrangements. Bergenia perform happily in any well-drained, slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil. They tolerate short periods of drought, yet perform best if the soil is kept moderately moist. Bergenia plants prefer partial shade in hotter climates.

Sow Bergenia ground cover seed indoors. Use starter trays and sterile starter mix. Press the Bergenia Cordifolia seeds into the starter mix but do not cover the seeds. Bergenia seed needs light to germinate. Keep the seeds moist until germination. Germination can be uneven. Moderate, but constant humidity is very important. Transplant the Bergenia plants into the garden 15 inches apart after all danger of frost has passed.

How to Grow

It is best to start bergenia seeds indoors before later transplanting outside. To do so, sow seeds into starter trays filled with a sterile starter mix. Press the seeds into the soil, but do not cover: light is necessary for germination. Keep the seeds moist until germination, which should occur in 3-6 weeks (it may be uneven). Moderate but constant humidity if very important. Once seedlings are established and all danger of frost has passed, they can be transplanted directly to the garden. Space plants 15 inches apart.

How to grow

How To Grow Christmas Rose From Seed: If sowing the Christmas Rose seeds directly outdoors, sow the ground cover seeds in the fall. The flower seeds require a cold treatment to germinate. You can either sow them on the ground where you will be growing them permanently or sow the seeds in pots, and then bring the pots in after a month or so of freezing weather. The freezing will encourage them to germinate more easily.

If you choose to sow the Christmas Rose flower seeds indoors, freeze the seeds for 3 - 6 weeks to break dormancy, then plant the flower seeds in starting medium. When the plant is around 2 inches tall, transplant to the permanent place. Helleborus Niger plants can take up to 3 years to flower when grown by seeds. Christmas Rose is a poisonous plant.

  • Sowing Rate: 5 seeds per plant
  • Average Germ Time: 28 - 56 days
  • Keep moist until germination
  • Attracts bumblebees
  • Depth: 1/16 inch

Herniaria Glabra

Green Carpet (Herniaria Glabra) - This low growing drought tolerant ground cover only reaches about 3 inches in height and forms a matforming green carpet for carpet-bedding, a lawn alternative, low growing container gardening, etc. Herniaria glabra, also known as Rupturewort or Green Carpet, is a soft to walk on, evergreen grass substitute for many people or the perfect ground cover. It can take quite a bit of foot traffic as it is almost as wear tolerant as grass. Its small, vibrant green glabrous foliage will get inconspicuous lime-green to white flowers on it, but they are barely visible and do not attract bees. Many people report never seeing Herniaria Glabra flower at all which makes it nice as there is no flower clean up.

Wear tolerant

Known to be nearly indestructible, Herniaria is an excellent choice for growing between flagstones, growing as a lawn substitute, or a ground cover.

Ground cover seed | herniaria glabra

How to grow

How To Grow Herniaria Glabra From Seed: It is recommended to start these ground cover seeds indoors in late winter, 8 to 10 weeks before transplanting outdoors in the spring. Use shallow trays filled to the top with good top soil or potting soil. Surface sow and do not cover the seeds. Bottom water or mist spray and try not to let the seed dry out.

Before transplanting into the bed, harden the plants for 10 - 14 days in a protected area outside. Hardening off will gradually expose the tender plants to wind, sun and rain and toughen them up to help prevent transplant shock. To transplant, use a light application of liquid fertilizer or starter fertilizer and water well.

  • Sowing Rate: 3 - 5 seeds per cell or approximately 5,000 seeds covers 100 square feet
  • Average Germ Time: 7 - 14 days
  • Keep moist until germination
  • Depth: Do not cover

Ground Cover Specifications

Herniaria Glabra spreads in all directions filling up to two feet per plant! It is not fussy about soil, happily growing in poor soil and gravel. This low growing plant of about 3 inches has one long tap root which makes it extremely drought tolerant. Green Carpet can grow in full sun or shady locations. The tiny leaves of Herniaria Glabra create a dense evergreen carpet, becoming bronze or red colored in winter adding even more interest.

Limnanthes Douglasii

Meadowfoam (Limnanthes Douglasii) - Grow Limnanthes Douglasii seeds for this annual that is native to California. Limnanthes is commonly called Poached Egg Plant or Meadowfoam, and it is not only visually very striking and attractive, but it also has a very nice aroma as well. Limnanthes Poached Egg Plant is not fussy about soil, and it will easily and quickly spread, creating a low-growing, shiny, carpet. Each meadowfoam plant can spread up to 30 inches! Poached Egg Limnanthes is a very long blooming annual with a mass of charming, 1 inch clear white and lemony yellow 2-toned blooms on 8 inch stems. It easily sows its own flower seeds for next year's display. Meadowfoam plants are great as a ground cover plant, and they will grow well in pots too.

Sow Limnanthes Douglasii seeds directly outdoors in a prepared seedbed in spring after danger of frost has passed. Meadowfoam seed should be pressed into the soil and very lightly covered with soil. When large enough to handle, thin the Poached Egg Plant seedlings.

Polygonum Capitatum

Pinkhead Smartweed (Polygonum Capitatum Punching Balls) - Polygonum Capitatum seeds can be grown to form a low-growing, spreading ground cover. A synonymous botanical name is Persicaria Capitata, and it has many common names: Pinkhead Smartweed, Pink Knotweed, Pink Clover, and Pink Fleece Flower. Pink Knotweed uses include containers, baskets, edging the front of the border or as ground cover plants. It looks especially lovely in raised beds or containers where it can spill over the edges. Pinkhead Smartweed is praised for its burgundy tinted foliage and small coral-pink round flower heads. It is a tough, easy-to-grow ground cover for sun or shade with a long bloom season.

Start Polygonum Capitatum seeds indoors in late winter for areas with a short growing season. Use quality seed starting soil and small pots. Press the ground cover seeds into the moistened soil and lightly cover. Maintain moisture until germination occurs. After danger of frost has passed, transplant the Pink Knotweeds seedlings outdoors after hardening the ground cover plants for 10 days or more. For areas with a long growing season, start the Knotweed ground cover seeds directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed. Prepare a weed-free seedbed and lightly cover the seeds with soil after broadcasting.
