  • Rate of growth: average

    A lovely old-fashioned mat-forming pink with highly scented double ragged white flowers from early summer through to autumn. The silver-green foliage sets off the flowers beautifully but even when it is not in flower this low creeping evergreen makes a good foil for other plants. It is best planted towards the front of a perennial border between cracks in paving in a rock garden or in a pot. Deadheading regularly will help encourage plenty of flowers and keep the plant looking tidy.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole when planting out. Apply a balanced fertiliser in spring and deadhead the spent blooms to prolong flowering
