Androsace sarmentosa-Rock Jasmine

Propagating Androsace or Rock Jasmine can be done either in the spring or fall by digging up the rooted rhizomes that trail away from the parent and transplanting into a sandy/gritty composted well draining soil. It fills in the crevices in rock walls just fine. It’s blooms are fragrant and various species come in white, pink or lilac and this variety flowers in May-June. It is evergreen, deer may munch, it reaches a height of 4"5", and is semi-drought tolerant in full sun or partial shade, but in warmer zones no afternoon sun.
