Helianthemum Mutabile

Rock Sun Rose (Helianthemum Mutabile Mix) - This evergreen flowering drought tolerant plant produces a mixture of flower colors that include white, pink, rose, red and yellow. With the right conditions, the Rock Rose or sometimes called Sun Rose can be a prolific bloomer, and the entire bush may end up covered in the colorful one-inch flowers. Rock Rose blooms in summer and grows to about 6 - 12 inches tall and can spread 24 inches in width. Helianthemum nummularium grows best in full sun and well-drained soil. It does not require a lot of water to stay healthy looking making it perfect for xeriscaping. Rock Rose uses include border plantings, ground covers, and it is excellent in containers. Rock Rose is also known as Sun Rose.

Rock Rose seeds are easy and rewarding to grow. The ground cover seeds can be started in early spring directly outdoors after the danger of frost has passed. Rock Rose seeds can be sprinkled onto the soil surface and should be gently pressed into the soil. Keep the ground cover seeds moist until germination. After blooming, the plant should be cut back by 1/3. This keeps the plant attractive and neat, but it also encourages a second bloom. For colder regions, mulch for winter protection.

Sweet Woodruff (Asperula Odorata or Galium Odoratum) - Also known as Our Lady's Lace, this low-growing perennial is versatile and grows well from Sweet Woodruff seeds. Often used as a ground cover, Sweet Woodruff herb plants have whorled leaves and small vanilla-scented white flowers in spring. It does make an excellent ground cover plant due to its low-growing nature and spreading habit. Historically, the herb seeds were grown for an aromatic plant that was used as an air freshener and placed in linen closets. Sweet Woodruff herb plants are also natural insect repellents and gardeners often grow them around ornamentals like roses to keep the pests away.

Medicinal uses

As a medicinal herb, Sweet Woodruff was used to treat numerous ailments such as, nerve pain, migraines, and was often used for the treatment of wounds.

How to grow

How To Grow Sweet Woodruff From Seed: Sweet Woodruff seeds germinate best after a period of cold temperatures. Some gardeners will dampen peat moss, mix the herb seeds into the peat moss and then place the peat moss/seed mixture in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 weeks before sowing.

Others will sow the herb seeds in a starter tray, water, seal the tray, and place it in the refrigerator. Finally, the last method of sowing would be to directly sow the Sweet Woodruff seeds outdoors in a prepared seedbed in late winter or first of spring while frosts are still expected.

  • Sowing Rate: 4 - 5 seeds per plant
  • Average Germ Time: 30 - 65 days
  • Keep moist until germination
  • Attracts bees and butterflies
  • Depth: 1/4 inch

Plant Specifications

Sweet Woodruff prefers a semi-shady spot that's protected from the sun during the hottest part of the day. Shallow rooted and preferring rich, porous soil, it is a good choice near trees, or in problem areas where there are tree roots or other obstructions, like rocks, close to the soil surface. It likes moist conditions, and given enough water will grow to a nice low height of about 8 inches. If it starts to wilt, provide mulch and additional water.
