Description

6-8" tall x 15" wide (cutting propagated). A little known native from the short grass prairies of the western Great Plains. But not for long! A heavy bloomer from late spring through the summer, this tough plant will be the star of your xeriscape. Dwarf Sundrops likes a lean, well-drained soil and a good shearing before the growing season in late spring to keep it looking tidy and loaded with flowers. A fine companion plant for Nepeta and Penstemon.
