Drosanthemum marinum, a creeping plant native to South Africa, forms large mats and with hairy leaves. White to pink flowers in groups on short stems, grows in shallow sandy patches on rocks exposed to sea spray.
They grow easily from seed. To speed up germination, allow the seeds to soak in hot water for a day before sowing. Do not boil the seeds in the water. Sow seeds in autumn or summer in a seed tray of river sand, scatter over a large area, as overcrowding of seeds will cause damping off. Care should be taken to sprinkle the sown area lightly with river sand. Place seed tray in a sunny position, keep the soil medium moist (use a mist sprayer) and after two weeks the seeds will germinate
Price is for 5 seeds.
