Product information "Waldsteinia ternata - Siberian waldsteinia"

As a distant relative of our beloved strawberry, Siberian waldsteinia is a valuable ground cover. Waldsteinia ternata, the barren strawberry, originally comes from the sparse forests of Europe and the Middle East. It spreads by creeping rhizomes and is quite vigorous. It forms an approximately 15 cm low-growing, dense carpet.

Plants per square meter: 8-12 pieces

Its evergreen, hairy leaves are about 6 cm tall. Numerous, bright, golden yellow flowers appear in April and May between the dark green foliage and turn the green carpet into a colourful sea of ​​flowers.

Siberian waldsteinia is the ideal companion for perennial beds in gardens or as an underplanting from shrubs and hedges. Since it is very competitive, Waldsteinia should only be combined with robust perennials. It thrives even at problem locations and is therefore suitable for garage entrances or even as a lawn substitute under large trees. According to current test results at the Bavarian State Institute for Viticulture and Horticulture in Veitshöchheim, Waldsteinia ternata is an alternative to grass for lawns. In a three-year trial, different turf replacement plants were tested for characteristics such as area coverage, vitality and visual impression. Waldsteinia ternata did quite well.

As the name suggests, Waldsteinia grows best in semi-shade in humus-rich, slightly moist soils. Where it grows quite fast, is always healthy and is tough. Because the shade of large trees it endures as patient as its root pressure. Like most perennials the Siberian waldsteinia needs little attention and care. In addition to a basic fertilisation in the spring that ensures a brisk growth, should, and will be pointed to the foothills in the right direction. In autumn the plants should be exempt from mulch so they do not rot. Otherwise, no maintenance measures are necessary.
