The sand pink is a gorgeous little wild flower, widely distributed amongst the dry, sandy meadows and rocky screes of Northern and Central Europe, all the way up to Siberia.
Although small, it's a tough little survivor that has happily redistributed itself, colonising dry riverbanks and roadsides in very harsh environments.
Lovely fringed white blooms, some with a hint of pink rise on stiff stems above blue green grass like foliage. They emit a powerful fragrance of cloves which is strongest at sunrise and sunset.
A fine specimen for a rock garden or extremely well drained soil in full sun.
