One of the compact mossy kinds of androsace, this dwarf alpine from the Caucasus mountains forms small rosettes of deeply-toothed oval leaves and dense heads of pale pink flowers from April to July and is best in an alpine house or on a dry rockery.
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.
