We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain, though judging by its native range it should succeed outdoors in many parts of this country. It should also be very tolerant of maritime exposure. A mat forming plant, it can be up to 60cm in diameter[1]. The following notes are based on the general needs of the genus. Requires a position in full sun in a well-drained gritty soil[2].
