Propagation:


Division in spring.


Seed sown in March.

Seed just covered and kept at 20°C (68°F) until germination. After germination it should be kept at a lower temperature with plenty of light so the plants won't become lanky.

A creeping ground cover that is close to impossible to eradicate, so it's important to choose it's position well.
It's a good ground cover where it can spread freely.
