Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – we have no details for this species but suggest sowing the seed in late winter in a cold frame. Grow on for at least the first winter in a greenhouse or frame and plant out in late spring. Division.
Requires a position in full sun in a well-drained gritty soil[200]. This species is hardy to at least -17¡c[200]. Plants form dense cushions up to 45cm in diameter[69]. There is some confusion over the correct name for this species. Some books suggest that it should be called Bolax glebaria, though the new RHS Dictionary of Gardening shows them as two distinct species[200].
