Mertensia hardy perennials flowers


Mertensia hardy perennials flowersMertensia are hardy perennials that flower from March to July. They will grow in any garden soil, but do best in peat, and are propagated by division. They make fine border plants.

Mertensia Maritima and Mertensia Parviflora, however, are best grown in pots, in very sandy soil, perfection being afforded them during the winter. Their height differs from 1.5 to two feet.
