Vancouveria hexandra - Seeds

Vancouveria hexandra


 This attractive, easy-care, 6- to 8-inch semi-evergreen groundcover boasts leaves that emerge bright green, then darken with age, creating a two-toned effect. In mid- to late spring, distinctive white blooms dangle on wiry stems, resembling an umbrella blown inside-out by a sudden gust of wind. The flower's stamens jut forward like a beak.

Noteworthy characteristics:
This native of the mixed deciduous and coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest creeps through the forest litter. It spreads quickly but discreetly to form a lacy carpet. It is best used to fill the gaps between taller plants.
Care: Provide humus-rich soil in light to full shade. In spring, cut away any winter-burned foliage to make way for new growth.

Propagation: Divide in spring.

Problems: Vine weevil.
