The Q&A Archives: arenaria montana sandwort

Question: I have planted this gorgeous sandwort in an area with full sun; I am keeping it well watered and it looks very healthy...even has unopened blooms all over it. But they won't open. Can you also send more information about this plant?

Answer: Arenaria montana sandwort is perfect for rock gardens as it loves the sunshine. It usually flowers from early through mid-summer. I suspect your extended winter weather has set your plants back a bit. As soon as air temperatures and soil temperatures are more summerlike, your sandwort should open those flower buds.
