Description :

Arenaria balearica (Corsican/Mossy Sandwort) is to be found throughout the rocky highlands of the Balearic islands, Corsica and Sardinia. Like Soleirolia it forms a flat, dense, carpet, all green and all year round. And it's hardy, too!

White flowering at the end of spring. This is a cousin of the Sagina family (pearlworts, pinks and carnations) and like them, prefers a humus-rich, moist to damp, well-drained gravelly soil. Partial shade or sun (not hot)

Our opinion: Arenaria balearica is useful as a small evergreen ground cover plant, for an alpine rock garden or to grow on scree or in crevices, etc. It also grows well in paving cracks in partial shade, at the foot of a waterfall or in a trough.
