SKU: ERCO24 Category:


Capitate sandwort is an unassuming yet pretty wildflower that holds its own in the harsh conditions it inhabits. Also referred to by an additional common name, ballhead sandwort, this species of flowering plant in the pink family forms a tuft of narrow stems and leaves at around 12″ tall, topped with a rounded cyme, or cluster of white flowers (i.e. capitate infloresence). As the name sandwort suggests, this species grows in sandy or rocky soils with sharp drainage, generally on slopes or ridges. It is perfect for a dry, rocky area or in a rock garden. Attractive to native bees and other pollinators.

Capitate sandwort (Eremogone congesta) seed packets contain approximately 100 seeds per packet.

Seed Germination Instructions

60-90 days cold-moist stratification. Sow outside in fall to late winter.

Sow seeds in pots or direct sow outside in fall with a light dusting of soil over the seeds and let nature do the stratification naturally outside if you have cold enough winters. If you live in an area with mild winters, you may need to provide the cold-moist stratification artificially. For more information please read through the information in our Seed Germination and Propagation Reference Guide.
