Glaux Species in
Family: Primulaceae

One species of deciduous perennial from the coasts of the temperate northern hemisphere.


Although pretty in a modest way, the species described is rather invasive unless the root system is confined. Well drained, sandy or gravelly soils in full sun produce the most floriferous plants. Propagation by division when dormant, or cuttings in summer.
