Arenaria General Information

Arenaria prefer a moist well-draining soil. Will tolerate light foot traffic and sometimes 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.
