Description

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. Although short-lived, it will readily self-seed on a shady scree or bank where it cannot be overshadowed by larger plants.

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.
