    Almost stemless, deep coral pink flowers open over tight domes of dark green leaves in Spring.

    This annual or biennial, endemic species of the French western Alps grows on stony, grassy places and in open woodland where it makes compact rosettes of toothed leaves with yellow-eyed pink flowers on thin wiry stems.

  8. 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. ...

  9. 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

  10. ANDROSACE FEDTSCHENKOI

    From tiny rosettes of crinkly leaves arise thin, branching stems which carry heads of small yellow-eyed, creamy white flowers. A rare plant from rocky areas, stony fields, screes and tundras in the alpine zone in the Mongolian Altai, Khubsugul, Khobdo and the Gobi-Altai! ... Learn More

  11. ANDROSACE HALLERI

    Beautiful, dainty, five-petalled, yellow-eyed, rosy-pink flowers appear in late spring on this rare and delicate cushion plant. Although it is totally frost hardy, it will do best either in tufa, a sheltered rock garden or a pot in the alpine house, where its flowers will retain their perfection. In the wild it is found mainly on alpine grass and rocks in the high peaks of the Massif Central, and more rarely in the Vosges, the Cevennes, the eastern Pyrenees and the Cantabrian Mountains. ...

  12. 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

  13. ANDROSACE LACTEA

    This strong-growing plant makes tight rosettes of shining green leaves, and in spring large white flowers with a yellow centre, in broad loose clusters of five or six. 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
