Description

Hermannia pinnata is a hardy, evergreen, drought resistant-flat growing groundcover with finely textured, light green foliage.

It bears masses of beautiful, nodding, apricot coloured, bell-like flowers that are carried on relatively long stalks above the plant in early summer. Unusually for a groundcover, the flowers are wonderfully fragrant. Grows best in full sun or light shade.

Plant in well-drained soil in rockeries, herbaceous borders or tumbling over the edges of containers and retaining walls.

It also makes a gorgeous hanging basket.
