April: Androsace sarmentosa Rock Jasmine

Androsace sarmentosa – Rock JasmineI have had the pleasure of growing this rock garden beauty for a couple of years now and it is a delight to have in my garden. It has evergreen rosettes of leaves and usually blooms in April for an extended period of time. It requires excellent drainage making it perfect for the rock garden, trough or small pot. I grow mine in a small pot and it is doing great. Surprisingly it does best in dappled shade or in a location with morning sun and afternoon shade.
