Description

This choice and quite superb dwarf hardy alpine has rosettes of pale pink flowers radiating from a tiny rosette of succulent green leaves. It is quite hardy and dies down to a resting winter bud underground, the leaves re-appearing each spring. It will gently self-seed in a trough making a gentle drift of glistening flowers.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
