detailed seed-starting info below

Forms a low-growing, woody-based cushion of tiny leaves. Flowers are equally tiny. One of ours is growing in a hypertufa trough, where it drapes nicely over the edge. Still a youngster, at less than a year old.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
