Full Description

Cerastium tomentosum, Snow in summer, is a vigorously spreading evergreen perennial forming a carpet of slender silver-grey leaves, smothered in May and June with dazzling white starry flowers, attracting bees. Good for trailing down walls and useful for covering sunny banks, but too invasive for all but very large rock gardens.
Height and spread 10-15cm by 60cm (4-6in x 2ft) or more. Native to Italy, including Sicily. Easy and hardy in any well-drained soil in sun. Drought tolerant once established.


Customer Comments

Just had to say how delighted we are with the petunias and pansies we bought from you a few weeks ago. Neither my wife nor I are great gardeners but the resulting display has been just wonderful. Almost all of our neighbours have stopped to comment. We have bought bedding plants elsewhere in the past but never had a display like this.
