Androsace sarmentosa ‘Sherriffii’

Sherriff’s Rock Jasmine

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.039.200

The deep-green evergreen rosettes of this species form a trailing carpet. Umbels of fragrant rose-pink flowers are held on taller stems during the spring. Very charming growing in a trough, gravel scree or on a wall. Requires excellent drainage, so ideal for growing in crevices between large boulders. In warm regions this appreciates protection from hot afternoon sun. New plants form on the ends of the trailing stems and are easily moved in early autumn or spring.
