Houstonia Coerulea hardy evergreens


Houstonia Coerulea hardy evergreensThe Houstonia Coerulea are hardy little evergreens that are more generally known as Bluets. They make charming ornaments for rock-work, planted between large stones, but in this position they need protection from severe frosts.

When planted in pots and placed in a cold frame they show to most advantage. A mixture of leaf-mould and sand, and a moist but well-drained situation is what they delight in.

They bloom continuously from April to July and their height is about three inches.
