The white ground cover - Snow in Summer (Cerastium Tomentosum) - is a mat-forming perennial 6 inches tall by 12 - 24 inches wide.
Snow in Summer is a dense, creeping, ground cover that does not tolerate foot traffic.
But, it works great on the sunny banks too steep for mowing, or in the cracks of the stone walls and rocky steps.
After the flowering period, you need to cut back Snow in Summer plant to tidy up the plant.
Snow in Summer ground cover can spread by self-sowing.
Generally, the rock cress takes one year to get established, and then begins to spread in its second season.
Once established, it is drought tolerant and needs little watering.

I started these directly in my garden bed kept moist (weather was warm) which required several waterings a day but wow quick germination and growth. Awesome!!
They totally do sprout.
I love that they sprouted fast in a pot now going to replant when they grow bigger.
I seem to have poor luck with getting these seeds to germinate. It could be my lack of gardening skills. I still have seeds left. Will try again.
