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.
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.
