On a gently spreading carpet of tiny pointed leaves appear sheets of white daisies which open white, turn pink and then fade to purple. This cushion plant is very long-flowering from late spring to autumn and is one of the best wall or dry-rockery plants.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
