Arenaria montana – Mountain Sandwort

This forms a dense, evergreen mat just 10cm tall. Carpet of long lasting white flowers in late spring and summer.

This is wonderful plant that is seen far too little in Motueka. A white carpet in late spring, this robust and very low maintenance plant can be used in borders, rockeries and around paving. Apart from our garden, I know of only the one in Woodlands Avenue; where ours came from.
