Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' grows best in the ground. Prepare a suitable hole in acid, humus-rich soil. Improve heavy garden soil by mixing in some sharp sand and peat. Plant the Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' blossoms and grows well in an area with complete sunshine or partial shade.
    Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' is great for the heather garden
    This plant grows in acidic soil and therefore fits well in the heather garden. The rock garden is also a good place, but calcareous soil is not well-tolerated by this plant. Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' is also a beautiful bloomer for a flower pot or planter.

  • Care
  • Lithodora Diffusa 'Heavenly Blue' is an easy-to-grow evergreen perennial that requires minimal maintenance. Prevent the soil around its roots from drying out. Cut the faded flower stems to half their size to ensure a hearty plant that will bloom well the following year. In winter, protect from frost by covering it with a layer of fallen leaves or branches. Also in winter too much moisture is not well tolerated.
