A Blanket of Snowy White
Cerastium Yo Yo is a smaller, more restrained variety, enveloped with glowing white flowers in early to mid summer. The woolly gray foliage holds up well in difficult dry spots. Try tucking it in a wall or on a slope - you won't be disappointed. Our plant spacing recommendations are based on how quickly these plants will spread in their first season of growth.

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.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
