Plant my ceratostigma willmottianum

Plant your Ceratostigma in the sun or possibly in partial shade from February to April and from September to November. It prefers fresh, fertile, well-drained soil to provide abundant flowering. Remember: they are ground cover, so plan to keep some space around for their development. Tamp the soil well to avoid air around the roots, then water thoroughly.

Water my ceratostigma willmottianum

During the first month, water once or twice a week. In pots, water from April to October twice a week.

Propagate my ceratostigma willmottianum

Very easy: between April and June, slice some of the rhizomes with a spade, and replant it in a new location.

Fertilize my ceratostigma willmottianum

If your soil is poor and stony, a supply of organic matter or mulching on the top of the soil in November can help greatly in the first years.

Check on my ceratostigma willmottianum

Ceratostigmas fear only powdery mildew, which benefits from warm and humid periods. Be careful never to wet the foliage while watering.
