Lithospermum Prostratum perennial evergreen trailer


Lithospermum Prostratum perennial evergreen trailerLithospermum Prostratum is a hardy perennial, evergreen trailer, needing no special culture, and adapting itself to any soil. It is increased by cuttings of the previous year's growth, placed in peat and silver sand, shaded and kept cool, but not too wet.

The Lithospermum Prostratum should be struck early in summer, so as to be well rooted before winter sets in. Its blue flowers are produced in June. Their height is about one feet.
