Cerastium General Information

Cerastium are good for hot dry spots and one of the best selections for colder areas. Needs well-drained soil but will thrive in poor soil. Will tolerate drought once established. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Cerastium Plant Care

Well-drained soil is essential. Shear back by one-third after flowering for fresh full foliage. Avoid shearing during hot dry conditions. Spring clean up is recommended. Can be divided every year if necessary to maintain boundaries.
