Description:

An excellent choice for rock gardens, or accenting borders. This small, ground-hugging, evergreen shrub is formed from masses of relaxed, twiggy branches holding tiny, glossy bright green leaves. Produces small white blooms nearly continuously in the mild winter regions; treat as summer annual in colder areas.

Design Ideas: Small low-growing perennials make excellent groundcover for the front of the perennial border or to cover up exposed legs on older shrubs. Equally suited for slopes and banks where drainage is assured. Destined for rock gardens where they nest the stones in foliage and color. Good edging to define a footpath or set of flagstone steppers. Spreading form will soften edges of raised planters and retaining walls. Suited to containers and best in terra cotta or porous stone troughs with good air exchange.

Easily grown in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established in the landscape, reduce frequency; continue to water container plants when soil surface becomes dry. Apply a general fertilizer in early spring. For a tidy appearance, prune annually to shape.

History

Plants and flowers are a lure for sulphur butterflies. Despite it's common name it is not related to the European or South African heathers.
