This pretty ground covering needs little soil to grow in. It is said you can sprinkle some seeds in a rocky bed and the flower will grow between the rocks. Strange as this sounds….in Texas the mountain pink is a wildflower that grows in dirt areas. But up here in Jersey it is a perrenial that we plant to enjoy. My mother has some planted near her sidewalk and it creeps and spreads every year like a ground cover. It has been there all the years I have been alive (and thats a long time haha} and still looks colorful!
