Lithodora General Information

Lithodora are hardy, low maintenance plants for butterfly gardens, rock gardens and woodland landscapes. Not for zones 3&4. May need to mulch or protect in Zone 5. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Lithodora Plant Care

Must have full sun and well-drained, acidic soil. We recommend cutting it back after flowering to freshen the foliage. Will self seed. Can divide or transplant spring or fall.

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!
