Ornamental Features

Siberian Whitlow Grass has clusters of yellow flowers at the ends of the stems from mid to late spring, which are interesting on close inspection. Its ferny leaves remain emerald green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Siberian Whitlow Grass is an herbaceous perennial with a ground-hugging habit of growth. It brings an extremely fine and delicate texture to the garden composition and should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and is best cleaned up in early spring before it resumes active growth for the season. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Siberian Whitlow Grass is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Rock/Alpine Gardens
  • Border Edging
  • Groundcover

Planting & Growing

Siberian Whitlow Grass will grow to be only 4 inches tall at maturity extending to 6 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 8 inches. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years.

This plant should be grown in a location that is shaded from the hot afternoon sun. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and will often die in standing water. It is not particular as to soil pH, but grows best in sandy soils. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This species is not originally from North America. It can be propagated by division.
