propagating perennials: Lithodora

Propagating Lithodora clumps should be done in the fall because it flowers from March until July but only in Zone 6 and up. It is an evergreen groundcover that reaches a height of 6" and its blooms are blue or white. It prefers full sun and acidic soils, no wet feet, and should be trimmed back after blooming to freshen the plant. It is deer resistant. Great plant for erosion control. Rule of thumb for plants that bloom in the spring, transplanting in the fall is best and for plants that bloom in the summer or later, spring transplanting is best, unless noted otherwise.
