Gysophila are annuals or perennials with divine, often evergreen foliage, thin wiry stems and abundant sprays of small flowers to form a mat of delicate colour and structure throughout summer. Gysophila are best suited to flower beds and borders within a cottage or informal garden setting. Alternatively, they will make a fine addition as part of a bouquet or cut flower arrangement. You should expect to see Gysophila grow to an approximate height and spread of 45-60cm (18-24”).
Gysophila are best planted in well-drained soil of loam, sand and chalk within a neutral or alkaline PH balance. Gysophila are best positioned in an area of full sun. Amend the planting area with compost or peat humus to enrich the soil if needed. Dig a hole that is the same depth and twice the width of your plant, spreading the roots out before settling into place. Space companion plants 60cm (24”) apart to allow room for plants to spread as they mature. After planting, water thoroughly and deeply and provide a layer of mulch to retain moisture levels.
Water Gysophila throughout active growth when the soil becomes dry to the touch and throughout periods of drought. Fertilise Gysophila once a month throughout active growth with an all-purpose fertiliser to improve blooming and foliage quality.
