We are thrilled to offer this wonderful selection of the native Houstonia serpyllifolia that plantsman Paul James discovered in West Virginia. I was amazed to see the 2' wide clumps in his mountaintop Virginia garden and determined to get it into cultivation. Houstonia serpyllifolia requires slightly moist soil and a few hours of part sun. Outside of that, it resents competition from other plants...slightly narcissistic, but we can overlook that. The teeny tiny green leaves form a 1" tall x 8" wide ground-hugging mat in one season, topped from mid-April through mid-May (NC) with equally teeny tiny sky blue flowers...not especially easy, but worth the effort.
