Flower - Asarina Procumbens
The spreading arms of this delightful prostrate trailing plant have small soft hairy grey leaves. Large yellow and red-blotched white "snapdragons" are produced for many months throughout the summer. It self-seeds without ever becoming a nuisance.
Seeds are best sown in winter or early spring as they benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost after sowing to break their dormancy. They may also be sown at any time and, if the seeds do not come up within 4 or 5 weeks, the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. These seeds may still take several months to appear so please keep the pot or tray safely.
