This delightful dwarf member of the primrose family, also called the pygmy flower or rock jasmine, grows high on the the Fell Fields of California, where it produces small rosettes of crinkled leaves from which arise thin stems carrying small yellow-eyed, creamy white flowers.
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.
