Arenaria montana-Mountain Sandwort

Propagating Arenaria or Mountain Sandwort is done either in the spring or preferably in the fall by transplanting the well rooted rhizomes that spread out from the parent plant or if happy it is a great self seeder. It grows to a height of 2"-4" and will take light foot traffic so it is a plant that can be placed between flagstones. It blooms May through June and the basic color is white but there is also a pink variety. It is well suited for alpine gardens and prefers a sandy well draining soil in full sun and is drought resistant when established, deer resistant and also evergreen.
