Originally from the high-altitude grasslands of southern Spain, Arenaria lalfacarensis forms a charming cushion that looks like dense, soft moss.
The tiny silver-green leaves are adorned in springtime with little white flowers. Hardy.
Excellent alpine plant easy to grow in troughs, crevices, scree or in an alpine rock garden or alpine greenhouse.
Grow in the shady in humus-rich, moist, gravelly soil. Slightly acidic to chalky soil. Summer drought resistant.
A bed of fine gravel round the base of the plant will protect the foliage from too much moisture in the winter.
