Short spikes of flowers are produced from late spring through to autumn but are only part of the ornamental value of these hardy ground covers. Forming low mounds of attractive foliage gives year round interest with silvery white leaves edged in green. Great for general garden use where there is semi shade to dappled light. Also can be used in rockeries or hanging baskets.
L 'Orchid Fost' has lilac coloured flowers, L 'Candy Frost' - a lovely shell pink and L. 'Snow 'n' Frost' a crisp white display.
Grows well in most soils that are moist but well draining. Do not allow to dry out over extended periods of heat. No pruning required although a light trim can be given during early spring to shape. An addition of a slow release fertiliser in spring recommended. Frost tolerant.
