    This tiny "Rock Jasmine" has small loose rosettes of dark green leaves, with short stems bearing clusters of white flowers.

  3. ANDROSACE CYLINDRICA

    This is one of the choicer dwarf species and is also one of the easier to grow. A tiny plant, very much like Androsace ciliata, it comes from the same regions in the Pyrenees, where it forms mossy tufts of rounded cone-like columns, each less than an inch high, covered thickly with hairs, with white flowers nestling in the centre during April and May. ...

  4. ANDROSACE CYLINDRICA X HIRTELLA

    This is a beautiful and rewarding hybrid androsace to grow producing a tight and solid dome of minute leaves, which, in early spring, support a complete covering of fragrant, yellow-eyed white starry flowers. One of the parents, Androsace hirtella itself, grows only on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees, the mountain range between France and Spain, where it thrives at 1800-2500 m in the crevices of limestone cliffs, but it can be cultivated happily in non limy composts which should contain one half to two thirds of a sharp grit with a particle size of 2-5 mm. High alpine androsaces, of which this is a typical example, prefer to be grown out of doors rather than in an alpine house but care needs to be taken to avoid excessive damp during the winter. This plant received an RHS Award in 1936! ... Learn More

  5. ANDROSACE HIRTELLA

    This rare, beautiful and rewarding species is studded with short-stemmed, yellow-eyed white flowers and bears densely-tufted, small linear green leaves which are borne in rosettes. In the wild it grows only on the northern slopes of the Pyrenees, where it thrives at 1800-2500m in the crevices of limestone cliffs, but in cultivation does fine in well-drained, non limy composts. An ideal show plant, this variety also does well outdoors in tufa, preferably with winter cover. ... Learn More

  6. ANDROSACE LACTEA

It will do best in a gravel bed or scree with good drainage, and will usually self seed freely around. In the wild it inhabits limestone rocks from 3000 to 4500 feet, from the Cevennes through the Alps into Austria. ... Learn More
