GERMINATION

Direct sow on the surface of the soil in late fall for early spring germination. To plant in the spring, direct sow in the surface of the soil and keep lightly moist until germination, which should take place within 10-15 days. This plant thrives in poor or rocky soil, and prefers well drained to dry conditions; it tolerates heat, but prefers moderate temperatures. When grown in partial shade, the plant grows slightly taller with fewer blossoms and less silvery foliage.

PLANTING

Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Since these plants tolerate drought well, watering should not be necessary once they mature. Excess moisture or humidity may cause disease. In good growing conditions this plant will spread vigorously, and has been considered invasive in some regions. Unless the seed is being saved, cut the plant back after blooming for neat growth; it can also tolerate being mowed. After several seasons, the plants may be divided in spring or fall. This plant makes a good choice for rock gardens, borders, rock walls, or as a stunning native ground cover. Deer avoid this plant.
