Arenaria General Information:

Arenaria prefers a moist well-draining soil. Will tolerate light foot traffic and used as a small scale lawn substitute or between stepping stones. A pretty filler in containers surrounding upright plants.

Arenaria Plant Care:

Any winter damaged foliage can be removed in spring if needed. Divide in early spring. Cut out sections and replant in a moderately moist soil. The resulting empty space will fill in quickly with greenery. Allow soil around established plants to dry out a bit between waterings.
