Arenaria montana ‘Lemon Ice’
“..... vast and robust and indispensable in cultivation.”
This new variety is a distinct break from the summer snow white flowers of the wild Spanish species. The 10 cent sized blooms are lemon in bud opening to soft lemon in flower before ageing to creamy white. The mat of deep green foliage disappears under a mass of flowers during late spring and early summer and sporadically during other times. Height 12cm width 60cm or more. Happy in any sunny spot and fairly drought tolerant when once established.
